**About me:**

I'm currently a PhD student at the Selmer Center (UiB). My area of interest is quantum computation
(with a particular focus on the
topological
approach). My supervisor is Matthew G.
Parker. Before that, I studied Mathematics at Durham University, UK
(2012-2016).

OEIS Entry:

The necklace Catalan numbers count the number of different ways in which a ring of anyons can be fused (i.e. the number of parenthesizations of N beads on a necklace). I'll upload a proof for the formula shortly!
