Adam Giambrone


Hi and welcome to my website! My name is Adam Giambrone and I am currently a Visiting Assistant Professor of Mathematics at the University of Connecticut. Previously, I was a Visiting Assistant Professor of Mathematics for the 2014-2015 academic year at Alma College. I received my Ph.D. in mathematics from Michigan State University. My adviser was Effie Kalfagianni.

My main area of research interest is knot theory; specifically, I am interested in the relationships among knot theory, low-dimensional topology, and graph theory. My areas of research focus are:

  • the relationships between the structure of families of link diagrams and bounds on the hyperbolic volume of the link complement.

  • the relationships among sigma-adequacy or homogeneous adequacy for a link diagram, the Tait graph associated to a checkerboard coloring of the link diagram, and the Tutte polynomial of the associated Tait graph.

  • I am also interested in undergraduate mathematics education and the scholarship of teaching and learning. I am a "Red 2015" Project NExT Fellow. I have also completed a Certification in Teaching College Science and Mathematics Program at Michigan State University and I helped create and run a weekly Student Teaching Seminar for mathematics graduate students at Michigan State University.
