About me:

I am a Hodge postdoctoral researcher in Mathematics at the Institut des Hautes Études Scientifiques. My broad area of research is geometry and topology. More specifically, my work so far has been related to the large scale geometry of mapping class groups of surfaces and various graphs and complexes on which they act, such as the curve complex.

Previously, I spent six months at the Fields Institute for the Thematic Program on Teichmüller Theory. Before that, I was a PhD student at the University of Warwick, under the supervision of Brian Bowditch.
