Curriculum Vitæ


During Fall 2014 I am teaching Math 369: Linear Algebra I.


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 should soon be able to sign up on the workshop 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 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.
