Joan E. Licata


I am a Lecturer in Mathematics at the Australian National University.  My research is in low-dimensional topology and contact geometry, with a focus on Legendrian submanifolds, Heegaard Floer theory, knot theory, and three-manifolds.

I’m the convener for Honours in Mathematics at ANU.  Please email me if you have any questions about our program.

My course office hours are posted on Wattle, but I’m also available by appointment.




My husband, Anthony Licata, is also a mathematician. My kids haven’t proved any theorems yet.
