Title: Spatial graphs and shape modelling in chemistry

I will give a general overview of my research interests which is two-fold: First, embeddings of graphs in 3 dimensional spaces, in particular their entanglements. Second, modelling of shapes in chemistry. Shapes appear in many contexts — shape of charge densities, shapes of cavities in crystals, bonding graphs of molecules or networks describing diffusion paths. The mathematical tools that I am using include geometric topology, graph theory, differential geometry, and topological data analysis.
