I am currently a Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the Georgia Institute of Technology. I received my PhD from the University of Texas and then spent several years at Stanford with an NSF postdoctoral fellowship. The next stop was the University of Pennsylvania where, after four years, I became an Associate Professor and then moved to Georgia Tech.

My advisor at the University of Texas was Bob Gompf. However my mathematical interests and career really began much earlier in an inspiring calculus class I took from Coke Reed as a freshman at the University of Texas.

I live with my wife, Lori Lejeune, and two cats in the Atlanta area.

Research Interests:

I am primarily interested in the topology of low dimensional manifolds and its relation with geometry and dynamics. Please take a look at my vita in pdf format for more information.
