Welcome!

I am a Zuckerman Postdoctoral Fellow working with Michah Sageev in the Geometry and Topology Research Group at the Technion -- Israel Institute of Technology.

I received my PhD from Temple University under the supervision of David Futer in May 2020. Here is my CV.

My research interests lie in geometric group theory and low-dimensional topology.

Specifically, I am interested in the interplay between combinatorial and dynamical behavior of group actions such as uniform exponential growth with the algebraic properties like presence of free subgroups and residual finiteness. I mostly work with groups with one of several notions of nonpositive curvature including: Gromov hyperbolicity CAT(0), relative hyperbolicity, acylindrical hyperbolicity, hierarchical hyperbolicity.

I am currently seeking academic positions starting 2023 Autumn
