Hello. I'm Tom Hockenhull, a third year Ph.D. student working under the supervision of Dr. Jacob Rasmussen and Prof. Richard Thomas on knot theory and 3-manifold topology - more specifically, I am presently interested in calculating the bordered Floer homology of Lipshitz, Ozsváth and Thurston for some specific classes of manifold.
This is my 'official' homepage. I also have another homepage which may or may not be more representative of me.
Should you wish to contact me, my Imperial email address is over to the left. This is set up to redirect to another address, but computers being as they are it may be helpful to state here that that email address is thomas dot (my surname) at gmail dot com.
P.S. The photo to the left is of me wearing a crown because it was taken on my twenty fifth birthday.
My comic strip and poster
I draw a comic strip based around topology, for Chalkdust magazine. You can find it here on the Chalkdust website, or, if you'd prefer, I have a mirror on my own website which might read a little easier, if you'd prefer.
I also made a poster, with Marco Marengon, which won the poster competition for the whole university. It can be found here: Invariants and Categorification.
BREAKING NEWS ANOTHER CONFERENCE PLEAse ATTEND
I am organising this year's ECSTATIC conference in topology at Imperial college.
Breaking news conference alert everyone attend
I am co-organising this year's ECSTATIC conference in topology at Imperial college this year. It will be a blast. see above for this year's workshop.
Hooray Marco Marengon and I won the poster competition
Here is a link to the homepage of my partner in crime.

A useful list of seminars in London which I attend with varying regularities
Imperial Junior Knot Theory and Geometric Topology Seminar & Reading Group (this needs a catchier name) this now has a catchy name: it has been re-branded as the TAKTIC seminar, presumably to appeal to a younger, hipper demographic.
