Curriculum Vitæ

During Spring 2015 I am teaching Math 670: Introduction to Differential Manifolds. Please see the course page for more information.

I am organizing a workshop on Symplectic and Algebraic Geometry in the Statistical Physics of Polymers at the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics which will be held October 12–16, 2015. If you’re interested, you can apply for the workshop here.

My primary research interest is in using geometry to solve topological and physical problems. I am currently working on a long-term project which uses Riemannian and symplectic geometry to develop a new framework for understanding the probability theory of closed random walks and modeling ring polymers. Please see the research page for more.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email me.
