Upcoming talks and places you might run into me:


Research interests: I work in geometric and combinatorial group theory. My past work and much of my current work is focused on groups acting on trees and boundaries of trees, e.g. self-similar and automata groups, branch groups, groups in the extended Thompson family, etc....
