**NSF Postdoctoral Fellow**

Department of Mathematics

Rutgers University–Newark

I like thinking about topics related to outer automorphisms of free groups and
mapping classes of surface diffeomorphisms.
I’m curious about geometric topology, geometric group theory, Teichmüller theory,
tropical geometry, orbifolds, cube complexes, etc.
