i know that geometric topology is a field that is connected to knot theory, i wonder what are the similarities between the two subjects, and in what subject in particular they overlap?

It would appear that the objects of study of geometric topology are a subset of algebraic topology. That subset consisting of low dimensional manifolds. There is presumably, therefore, more of an analytic flavour to its study than general algebraic topology.
