I began working at Lehman College in Spring 2000. Before that I had worked as a postdoc at Johns Hopkins and at Harvard, after completing the doctoral program at the Courant Institute in 1996. I am also a doctoral faculty member at the CUNY Graduate Center and a frequent visitor at Stony Brook, where I work with doctoral students and postdocs conducting mathematics research.

My research is in the field of Geometric Analysis: Riemannian Geometry, Metric Spaces, and Geometric Measure Theory. In the Fall of 2013, I was a visiting research professor at MSRI as part of the program on Mathematical General Relativity. In the Fall 2018 and Spring 2019, I was on leave to serve as a member of the Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) and also as a visitor at Simons Center for Geometry and Physics (SCGP). Here is a Report on my 2018-2019 Fellowship Leave (pdf). Here is a 2013 Research Description which was distributed when being nominated for American Mathematical Society Fellow by Shing-Tung Yau and by William Minicozzi. I was selected as an AMS Fellow in 2015 "for contributions to geometry, including the study of Ricci curvature, and for mentoring activities, especially for young mathematicians from underrepresented groups."
