Gromov-Witten theory and spectral curve topological recursion are important parts of modern algebraic geometry and mathematical physics. In my thesis I study relations between these theories and some important new aspects and applications of them. In particular, a construction for a local spectral curve which produces the same invariants as a given Gromov-Witten theory is presented in the thesis, as well as constructions for quantum spectral curves for several important theories, and a new proof of the so-called ELSV formula.
