Papers, talks, my CV and more here!.

I am an assistant professor at Binghamton University. Previously, I was a postdoc at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics at Bonn, and at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I got my PhD from Stanford University in 2014, under Maryam Mirzakhani.

My research areas are low dimensional topology and geometric group theory. Given a surface *S* with negative Euler characteristic, I'm particularly interested in various structures on *S*, such as its Teichmuller space, closed geodesics on *S*, and more broadly, the space of geodesic currents on *S*.

Previously at Binghamton, I have taught

- Math 304: Linear Algebra,
- Math 330: Number Systems (an introduction to proofs class),
- Math 463: Differential Geometry,
- Math 513: Graduate Topology,
- Graduate topics courses in Mapping Class Groups and Teichmuller Theory.
