Allison H. Moore, Ph.D., received her doctorate in mathematics from the University of Texas at Austin.
Her research interests are in geometry, topology and knot theory, and their applications to physical systems, in particular molecular biology and DNA topology.
Prior to joining the faculty at VCU, Moore was a Krener Assistant Professor of Mathematics at the University of California, Davis, and an RTG Lovett Instructor of Mathematics at Rice University, in Houston, Texas, where she was engaged in research projects in low-dimensional topology. While at UC Davis, she also held a dual postdoctoral appointment in the Department of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics in the Topological Molecular Biology Lab.
Moore has supervised numerous undergraduates in research projects, and enjoys mathematics outreach with adults and children of all ages.
