Hi, I'm Alex Rasmussen. I am a Burgess Research Assistant Professor at the University of Utah.

In VestfirĂ°ir.

I am interested in geometric group theory and low-dimensional topology. I am particularly interested in the following topics:
  • infinite type surfaces (analogs of the curve graph for infinite type surfaces, laminations on infinite type surfaces),
  • classifying and comparing the actions of a fixed group on different hyperbolic metric spaces,
  • relative hyperbolicity and other generalizations of hyperbolicity for groups and metric spaces.


Non-math interests: playing music (guitar and banjo), reading, tabletop games.
