Curriculum Vitæ

I am currently teaching Math 161 and Math 235; previous courses can be found on the teaching page.

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 topologically constrained random walks and polymer networks. Please see the research page for more.
