I am an Associate Professor at Georgia Tech. Previously, I was a Ritt Assistant Professor at Columbia University and a member of the IAS.

More details can be found in my CV (last updated August 2018).

Caitlin Leverson, Tye Lidman, and I are co-organizing the Southeastern Undergraduate Mathematics Workshop (aimed at undergraduate math majors) at Georgia Tech, August 5-9, 2019. We are currently accepting applications. The deadline is May 31, 2019.

Research

I study low-dimensional topology, in particular knot theory, concordance and Heegaard Floer homology. My preprints and papers are available on the arXiv.

A talk I gave in August 2012 was blogged about on the Electric Handle Slide, a graduate student blog focusing on symplectic and low-dimensional topology.

In March 2014, Tye Lidman and I co-organized an AMS special session, which included a discussion of open problems. A list of these problems is available here.

In Summer 2017, Robert Lipshitz, Danny Ruberman, and I co-organized a workshop in Oaxaca, Mexico, which included a discussion of open problems. A list of these problems is included in the final report, available here.
