About us

The Centre for Geometry, Topology, and Applications (CGTA) provides a focal point for research in geometric group theory, topology, homotopy theory and noncommutative geometry. An important aspect of our work is to identify opportunities for direct applications of pure mathematics in the natural sciences. Members of the Centre lead interdisciplinary projects in medicine, biology and foundations of modern data science.

We are always interested in developing new collaborations and hosting visitors, postdocs and PhD students.
