Ismar Volić is a BosnianAmerican mathematician. He is a professor of mathematics at Wellesley College and a cofounder of the Institute for Mathematics and Democracy.
Education and career
Volić completed his undergraduate degree at Boston University in 1998 and his Ph.D. in mathematics at Brown University in 2003 under the direction of Thomas Goodwillie.^{[1]} He was a Whyburn Research Instructor at the University of Virginia from 2003 to 2006. He has been teaching at Wellesley College since 2006. He was a visiting professor at MIT, LouvainlaNeuve University, and the University of Virginia.
Volić is an active member of the BosnianHerzegovinian American Academy of Arts and Sciences, an organization dedicated to advancement of arts and science in BosniaHerzegovina. He was its treasurer in 201619, vicepresident in 201920, and will be its president in 202021. He travels to BosniaHerzegovina frequently through his involvement in various education and research activities, including advising Ph.D. students and working with various agencies to bring quality STEM education to the country.^{[2]}^{[3]}
Research
Volić's research is in algebraic topology. He is the author of over thirty articles and two books and has delivered more than two hundred lectures in some twenty countries. He has contributed to the fields of calculus of functors, spaces of embeddings and immersions, configuration space integrals, finite type invariants, Milnor invariants, rational homotopy theory, topological data analysis, and social choice theory.
