I am a PhD student at the Graduate Center. My research interests are in geometric group theory and related topics. This means I am primarily interested in studying groups, by examining their actions on various geometric and topological spaces. In non-technical terms, I study the shape of objects, by examining their symmetries. I also have a casual interest in collecting fun problems that are accessible to everyone. If you have such a problem, I would love to hear it!

Mathematics is both fascinating and beautiful. There is exciting and interesting math at all levels and I believe that everyone is capable of understanding, appreciating, and enjoying mathematics. My goal in teaching is to emphasis thinking, reasoning, and problem solving over the memorization of procedures. This provides the students with not only a better ability to understand and utilize mathematics, but it also demonstrates how deep, rich, and creative the world of math is.

If you would like to contact me, please do so by email.
