Hi, I'm Weiyan Chen.

I am an assistant professor at the Yau Mathematical Sciences Center (YMSC) of Tsinghua University in Beijing as of Fall 2020. Before that, I was a Dunham Jackson Assistant Professor in the School of Mathematics at the University of Minnesota in 2017-20. I received my PhD from the University of Chicago in 2017, under the direction of Benson Farb.

My work lies at the juncture of topology, algebraic geometry, representation theory, and combinatorics. I especially like to study various moduli spaces or configuration spaces using tools from algebraic topology. Here is a list of my papers.

Here is my CV [last update Dec 2020].
