I'm a Benjamin Peirce Fellow at Harvard University. I received my PhD in 2015 from UChicago, advised by Benson Farb. Some of my interests include low-dimensional topology; manifolds, fiber bundles, and their characteristic classes; mapping class groups, diffeomorphism groups, and arithmetic groups. In fall 2019, I will begin a tenure-track position at Brown.
