I will give a gentle introduction to the study of stratified spaces and describe their appearance in algebraic geometry as well as data analysis.

Professor Nanda works broadly in applied and computational algebraic topology. In particular, he works at the interface of algebraic topology, geometry and data science. Within the Maths Institute at Oxford, he is a member of the Data Science and Topology groups. For more details about Professor Nanda’s work, you
could consult this research statement (pdf, circa 2018), read some of his papers, or download some software. For fewer details, consider watching this short video (on YouTube).
