Hi! I am Ceren*. I am a graduate student in mathematics at UT Austin. In Fall 2022, I will join the Department of Mathematics at the University of Georgia as an LT Assistant Professor.

My research interests lie in low-dimensional topology, with particular emphasis on knot theory and 3-manifolds.

My advisor is Cameron Gordon.

Here is my curriculum vitae and my papers on arXiv.

* Although it is my middle name, I have always gone by Ceren. Its pronunciation, I am (frequently) told, can be troublesome for non-Turkish speakers but it’s actually very simple. Think of it as Jeren (in Turkish the letter C has the same sound as the letter J in English, like jewel). In IPA [ʤeren].


In April, I will be speaking at Columbia University’s geometry and topology seminar.

In May, with Eylem Zeliha Yıldız, I am organizing a GGTI geometry-topology student workshop on Khovanov homology.

This summer, with Bengier Ülgen Kılıç, Eda Kırımlı and Şefika Kuzgun, I am organizing DRP Turkey, a directed reading program which pairs undergraduate students studying mathematics at universities in Turkey with young researchers working at institutions around the world to work together on selected books or articles in mathematics.

In September, I will be speaking at 4-Manifolds: From Above and Below, CIRM, France.
