I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at University of Cologne associated to SYMPLECTIC STRUCTURES IN GEOMETRY, ALGEBRA AND DYNAMICS. My mentor is Hansjoerg Geiges. Prior to Cologne, I was a graduate student in the Department of Mathematics at Louisiana State University working under the supervision of Shea Vela-Vick. Here is my CV .
I am interested in low dimensional topology, contact geometry and knot theory. Specifically, my work addresses the classification and structure problems of Legendrian and transverse knots and links. Recently, I am focused on knot theory associated to overtwisted manifolds. I am also interested in the relationship between contact geometry and Heegaard Floer theory. For more information, please check my Research page.
I was the organizer of the graduate student geometry and topology seminar at LSU from 2017 to 2021.
