Allison N. Miller

I'm a low-dimensional topologist researching questions related to knot concordance, the study of 4-dimensional properties of knots.

I received my PhD in May 2018 from the University of Texas at Austin, where my advisor was Cameron Gordon. During my PhD, I spent four months at the Hausdorff Institute in Bonn, Germany participating in the Knot Concordance and 4-manifolds group of the Junior Trimester in Topology in fall 2016.

I now have an (over)abundance of titles: G.C. Evans Instructor in Mathematics at Rice University, Junior Fellow of the Rice Academy of Fellows, and NSF Postdoctoral Fellow with scientific mentor Shelly Harvey.

You can find my papers on the arXiv and find me in my office, Herman Brown Hall 456. My email is and my address is Rice University/ Department of Mathematics- MS 136/ P.O. Box 1892/ Houston, TX 77005/ USA.

Disambiguation/ Disclaimer: I am not Allison Moore, also once a student of Cameron Gordon at UT Austin, also once a postdoc at Rice in HBH 456, but now a Krener Assistant Professor at UC Davis. Nor am I Alison Miller, a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard who works in number theory. I can be distinguished from the many other Allison Millers in the world (who the reader can go out and discover for themselves) by my middle name- so far as I know I am the only Allison Northey Miller.
