About me

I’m an algebraic topologist and an Assistant Professor at Northeastern University.

My research interests include homotopy theoretic approaches to the study of manifolds, such as factorization homology and embedding calculus, applications to configuration spaces of manifolds and graphs, Lie algebras and their homology, stability phenomena, topological robotics, and stratified differential topology.

I can be reached at b-dot-knudsen-at-northeastern-dot-edu. My office is 460 Lake Hall.

I’m currently an organizer of Northeastern’s topology seminar. I was once an organizer of the Brandeis–Harvard–MIT–Northeastern Joint Mathematics Colloquium and of Harvard’s Thursday seminar.
