A 4-eared rabbit

I am currently a Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan. In the 2019-2020 school year, I am a Parekh Family Fellow with the Center for Inquiry Based Learning in the math department at the University of Michigan.

Research interests: low-dimensional topology, geometric group theory, and complex dynamics

I completed my PhD. in 2014 at Georgia Tech under the direction of Dan Margalit.

I am organizing a Hot Topics workshop at ICERM this November on Algorithms in Complex Dynamics and Mapping Class Groups.

From 2015-2018, I was a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

From 2014-2015, I was a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Math and Computer Science Department at Wittenberg University.

Summer 2019, I am mentoring a REU student at the University of Michigan. We are studying the Magnus representation of the mapping class group.

Summer 2018, I mentored a REU at Georgia Tech. We studied polynomials, mapping classes, and the curve complex.

Summer 2017, I mentored a REU at Georgia Tech. We studied the symplectic representation of the mapping class group.
