I am a postdoc in the School of Mathematics at the Georgia Institute of Technology.

My research lies at the intersection of geometric group theory, low-dimensional topology, and algebraic geometry. Specifically, I study the topology and algebra of mapping class groups and related spaces, such as moduli spaces of algebraic curves.

Some activities:
With Dan Margalit and Joan Birman, I organized a special session on mapping class groups.

I was a mentor at the summer 2019 REU at Georgia Tech. We worked on braid groups and totally symmetric sets. The poster is here.

We recently established the Georgia Tech DRP. You can read more about it here.
