This is the home page of Laura K. Zirbel.

I am a sixth year graduate student in mathematics at UCSB. My academic interests are applied topology and knot theory, and specifically exploring the relationship between topological constraints and the shape and the behavior of polymers. My advisor is Ken Millett.

My married name is Laura Plunkett, and I answer to that happily, as well as Laura Zirbel.
