I'm a fourth year graduate student of the mathematics department at Northwestern University. I got my Bachelor's degree at Peking University in China. Here is my CV. Email: wenyuanli2023 at u.northwestern.edu Office: Lunt Hall B11, Northwestern University. 
Research My research interest is symplectic/contact topology. It originates from the study of 'phase spaces' in classical mechanics, where one considers the space encoding both the location and the momentum of the particles, though nowadays people studying this subject have gone much further. The word 'symplectic' is borrowed from ancient Greek which means 'complex' (I learned this from Professor Ivan Smith's ICM talk). More specifically, my research interest is in symplectic/contact invariants coming from microlocal sheaf theory, especially invariants of Legendrian and Lagrangian submanifolds (with relations to invariants coming from pseudoholomorphic curves or generating families), and the connections with cluster theory, mirror symmetry and persistence modules. I am also interested in the flexibility side of symplectic/contact topology involving hprinciples. I am a student of Professor Emmy Murphy and Professor Eric Zaslow.
