Jeffrey Meier

I am currently a Postdoctoral Research and Teaching Associate at the University of Georgia. Previously, I was an NSF Postdoctoral Fellow and Zorn Postdoctoral Fellow at Indiana University. I earned my PhD in Mathematics at The University of Texas at Austin under the supervision of Cameron McA. Gordon in May, 2014. For a full history, see my CV.

My research interests include manifold theory and knot theory in dimensions three and four. Recently, I have been studying an assortment of low-dimensional objects: trisections of 4-manifolds, bridge trisections of surfaces in 4-manifolds, fibered ribbon disks, doubly slice knots, and primitive/Seifert knots. For more information, see my Research Statement. My research is currently supported by NSF grant DMS-1758087.

This semester I am teaching a graduate course on the Theory of Trisections at UGA, and I continue to organize a Directed Reading Program in the UGA Math Department, which I started in the fall of 2017. For more information about my past, present, and future involvement in undergraduate and graduate education, see my Teaching Page.
