CV
I'm an Assistant Professor in the Mathematics Department at Cornell.
Before coming here, 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, random surfaces, moduli spaces, hyperbolic geometry, dynamics, and ergodic theory. And I like talking about an even broader range of topics...
My research is supported in part by NSF Grant DMS2247244, and by the Simons Foundation.
