I am also mentoring Katelyn Gutteridge and Killian Meehan, two graduate students at the University of Missouri.  Katelyn is working on a masters project where she will write a program to compute distances between generalized persistence modules.  This project has applications in topological data analysis.  Killian Meehan is a PhD candidate, and Killian and I have written two papers together and are finishing a third.  My work with Killian concerns applying techniques from representation theory to persistent homology.  Both Killian and Katelyn will graduate in Spring 2018.
