Beginning in fall 2022, I will be a visiting researcher at the ENS Paris.
Beginning in fall 2023, I will tenure track assistant professor at the University of Utah.
I completed my PhD at Binghamton University in 2018. I then spent the 2018-2019 academic year as a research assistant at ENS de Lyon and the University of Goettingen. From 2019-2022, I was a Zassenhaus Assistant Professor at the Ohio State University.

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....
