About Me

I am an assistant professor at Notre Dame. My work lies at the juncture of geometry/topology, geometric group theory, and complex algebraic geometry. I study the connections between mapping class groups (including braid groups), some closely-related topological spaces (surface bundles and configuration spaces), and moduli spaces of Riemann surfaces and Abelian differentials.

I received my Ph.D from the University of Chicago in June 2017, where I was a student of Benson Farb. Prior to Notre Dame, I was a Ritt Assistant Professor at Columbia University. From 2017-2020 I was supported by an NSF postdoctoral fellowship, at Harvard with Joe Harris and at Columbia with Walter Neumann.

I am supported in part by NSF grant no. DMS-2153879.

Here is my CV.
