"A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral."—Antoine de Saint-Exupery, The Little Prince

Shamuel (Sam) Auyeung

I am a 6th-year graduate student at Stony Brook University (hence, am on the job market), with research interest mainly in symplectic geometry. More specifically, I think about various Floer homology theories applied to problems concerning the interplay of algebraic and symplectic geometry. I also have interest in gauge theories, low-dimensional topology, and mathematical physics but currently, more as a "hobbyist." My advisor is Mark McLean.
I am originally from Colorado (where the above photo was taken) and before arriving at SBU, I studied math, philosophy, and ancient Greek at Calvin College.

I'm not sure what to mind concerning copyright issues. But ultimately, shouldn't credit be given to Bill Watterson?
