I began working as an Assistant Professor at Lehman College in Spring 2000.   Before that I had completed postdocs at Johns Hopkins and Harvard, after completing the doctoral program at the Courant Institute at NYU in 1996.  I am also a doctoral faculty member at the CUNY Graduate Center and a visitor at Stony Brook, where I work with doctoral students and postdocs conducting mathematics research.   In Fall of 2013 I was a visiting research professor at MSRI as part of the program on Mathematical General Relativity.  In Fall 2018-Spring 2019 I was on leave to serve as a Member of the Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) at Princeton for the program on Variational Methods in Geometry lead by Prof Fernando Coda Marques and also 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 Bill Minicozzi.

The image above depicts sequences of asymptotically flat Riemannian 3-manifolds with positive scalar curvature whose ADM masses converge to 0 which were proven to converge in the intrinsic flat sense to Euclidean space in joint work with D. Lee appearing in Journal fur die Riene und Angewandte Mathematik (Crelle's Journal), Vol 686 (January 2014).
