Jack Smith

I am a College Associate Lecturer, and the Director of Studies in Pure Mathematics, at St John's College, Cambridge. I am also an Affiliated Lecturer in the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics.

Previously I was a visiting researcher at the Fields Institute, Toronto, a postdoc at University College London, and a PhD student of Ivan Smith.

Here you can find my thesis, me on arXiv, and my department profile page.

I can be contacted by email at j.smith AT dpmms.cam.ac.uk.


My main interests are in mirror symmetry and in interactions between algebra and Floer theory.
