Tom Needham

I am an Assistant Professor in the Mathematics Department at Florida State University. My research is in geometry and topology, with a focus on applications to problems in data science. My work uses tools from Riemannian, symplectic and metric geometry, topological data analysis and optimal transport.

My research is partially supported by NSF Grant DMS--2107808
