Francesco Lin

I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Mathematics of Columbia University.

My email addresses are flin-at-math-dot-columbia-dot-edu (research) and fl2550-at-columbia-dot-edu (teaching).

Here are my CV and MathGenealogy.

Some announcements:

  • We are hosting the conference Geometric Topology in NY at Columbia University on June 2-4.
  • Next year I will teach the first year graduate level Topology sequence. You can find a preliminary syllabus here.


I am interested in low-dimensional topology, differential geometry, global analysis, and their interactions. Most of my work involves the Seiberg-Witten equations and Floer homology; lately I have been thinking about the geometry of hyperbolic three-manifolds.

My research is partially supported by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and NSF grant DMS-2203498.


Here are my list of publications and Mathscinet profile.
