Low Dimensional Topology

Professor Thickstun received his Ph.D. from University of California in 1974. He has worked primarily on non-compact 3-manifolds and on the resolution of topological singularities in dimension three. A recent partial result on the Resolution Conjecture (obtained in collaboration with R. J. Daverman) has yielded the first characterization (modulo the Poincare Conjecture) of 3-manifolds among arbitrary topological spaces.
