Dr. Allen's research interests lie in the field of low-dimensional topology, the study
of manifolds in dimensions up to four.
More specifically, she studies knot theory in dimensions 3 and 4 and is particularly interested in using knot invariants arising from Heegaard Floer theory to study knot concordance, problems related to unknotting operations, and other knot-theroetic problems.
