Robert Ghrist
Robert Ghrist Robert Ghrist (Ph.D., Cornell, Applied Mathematics, 1995) is the Andrea Mitchell PIK Professor of Mathematics and Electrical & Systems Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania. He is a recognized leader in the field of Applied Algebraic Topology, with publications detailing topological methods for sensor networks, robotics, signal processing, tracking, network discovery, and more. He is the author of a leading textbook on the subject (Elementary Applied Topology, 2014). His prior work in leading the DARPA DSO SToMP project and participating in several DoD MURIs is complemented by NSF CAREER, NSF PECASE, SciAm50, and Vannevar Bush Faculty Fellow awards. Ghrist is also a dedicated expositor and communicator of Mathematics, with teaching awards that include the MAA James Crawford Prize, Penn's Lindback Award, and the S. Reid Warren award in Engineering at Penn. Ghrist is the author and animator of a popular MOOC on Calculus at Coursera, featured in the New York Times, BoingBoing, and Gizmodo. His current project is the "Calculus BLUE" series of electronic comic books on multivariable calculus.

Robert Ghrist, a professor of mathematics and electrical and systems engineering at the University of Pennsylvania, knows that wielding vast networks on behalf of nonuniversity benefactors can be tricky business.
Mr. Ghrist specializes in applied topology, an abstract math field. In practice, topological math can help someone harness huge collections of sensory inputs-like those collected by cellphones, for example-to model large environments and solve problems. The Department of Defense has enlisted Mr. Ghrist to do research along those lines. The Penn professor knows he has little power over how the Pentagon might use his insights. But he says that no longer bothers him.
