I obtained my PhD at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in August 2017 under the direction of Christopher J. Leininger (now at Rice) and Ilya Kapovich (now at CUNY). Before coming to Madison in Fall 2021, I was a Gibbs Assistant Professor at Yale. 

I am interested in Geometric Topology, Geometric Group Theory, Ergodic Theory and Dynamics. Check out my research page for publications, preprints and notes.  


I share in Federico Ardila's axioms. I also support the statement of inclusiveness.
