I am a postdoc at the Department of Mathematics, UT Austin.

**Mailing address**:

Department of Mathematics

University Station C1200

Austin, TX 78712-0257

**E-mail address**: `gunningham[at]math[dot]utexas[dot]edu`

**Office**: RLM 11.166

**Preprints **:
Spin Hurwitz numbers and topological quantum field theory, 1201.1273

A version of my thesis, "Categorified Harmonic Analysis on Complex Reductive Groups", should be available here shortly.

** Research Interests **:
My research centres around Geometric Representation Theory, Homotopy Theory, and Microlocal Geometry. More generally, I am interested in various aspects of Algebraic Geometry, Algebraic Topology, and Mathematical Physics.
Recently I have been thinking about:

- D-modules on reductive groups <\li>
- Spin topological field theories and Hurwitz numbers (see preprints above).
- The topology of character varieties via character sheaves (with David Ben-Zvi and David Nadler).
- Categories of constructible sheaves and generalizations of string topology (with David Treumann).

Together with Chris Elliott and David Nadler, I organized a masterclass in Gauge Theory, January 9th to 13th, 2012 at Northwestern University.
