Assistant Professor


Prof. Ho is currently an assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics of HKUST. He obtained his BA from Princeton University in 2011, his MSc and PhD from the University of Chicago in 2012 and 2017. From 2017 to early 2022, he was a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Science and Technology Austria. He is generally interested in using homotopical tools from higher algebra and higher category theory to tackle problems lying at the crossroad of representation theory, algebraic geometry, topology, and number theory.
