Tara Brendle

Last name

Tara Brendle is a mathematician who specialises in geometry, topology, and algebra.  Her research has recently focused on braid groups; these objects record particle motion in two and three dimensions.  Braids can be modelled using traditional plaits, but also have a vast array of applications in fields from robotics to cryptography to statistical mechanics.

She is currently a Senior Lecturer in Mathematics at the University of Glasgow.  After receiving her Ph.D. from Columbia University in New York in 2002, she held a VIGRE Assistant Professorship at Cornell University, an Assistant Professor at Louisiana State University, and spent a semester as a fellow at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in Berkeley, California.
