11:00 am — 12:00 pm


Open to the Public

This event is part of the Data Science and Applied Topology Seminar Series.

Registration not required.

Joint work with Chad Giusti.

Plant-pollinator interactions are critical for biodiversity and agriculture. Topological techniques reveal important community information such as potential missing resources. We analyze resource complexes generated by plant-pollinator interaction data and suggest explanations for observed topological features. This research extends foundational work by Sugihara with an emphasis on topological persistence and new data.
