**About Me:**I am an Assistant Professor at Brandeis University. Previously, I was an NSF Postdoctoral Fellow at Columbia University (2019-2021), an NSF Postdoctoral Fellow at UC Berkeley (2018-2019), and a Morrey Visiting Assistant Professor, also at UC Berkeley (2017-2018). I received my Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2017, where I studied geometric group theory under the supervision of Tullia Dymarz.

Here is a copy of my CV (updated November 2019).

I co-organize the Brandeis Topology Seminar. The current schedule of talks can be found here.

**Research interests:**I study geometric group theory and low-dimensional topology. In particular, I am interested in group actions by isometries on hyperbolic spaces, especially acylindrical actions. The kinds of groups I think about include hyperbolic and relatively hyperbolic groups, mapping class groups, Out(F_n), CAT(0) groups, three manifold groups, hierarchically hyperbolic groups, and many more.

**Papers:**

- Not all finitely generated groups have universal acylindrical actions.
