Helen Wong, Assistant Professor of Mathematics, has been awarded a $160,048 grant from the National Science Foundation for her project “RUI: Skeins on Surfaces.” Her project explores the extent to which the Kauffman skein algebra of a surface can serve as intermediary between quantum topology and hyperbolic geometry, and seeks to characterize knots and other topologically complex structures that can occur in DNA and proteins. As many as ten undergraduate researchers will participate in the research. Learn more about Wong’s research.

Matt Whited, Assistant Professor of Chemistry, has received an Undergraduate Research grant from the American Chemical Society Petroleum Research Fund. His project, “Stoichiometric and Catalytic Nitrene-Group-Transfer Reactions from Late-Metal Silylamides,” will explore versatile metal-catalyzed routes to forming carbon–nitrogen bonds that are ubiquitous in pharmaceuticals and commodity chemicals. The grant will support the PI and seven Carleton students in performing this cutting-edge research. Read more about the Whited lab here.
