I am an Assistant Professor in the Mathematics Department at Cornell University.
Before coming to Cornell, I was a Simons Instructor (research postdoc) in the math department at Stony Brook University. I received my PhD from Stanford University in 2018 under the direction of Maryam Mirzakhani and Alex Wright.
My research interests include Teichmüller theory, translation surfaces, moduli spaces, hyperbolic geometry, and ergodic theory. And I like talking about an even broader range of topics...
