I am a math professor at The Ohio State University. My research interests include topological and geometric combinatorics, stochastic topology, topological statistical mechanics, and geometric group theory. I am also interested in topological data analysis and applications of algebraic topology in general.
I am currently advising PhD students Paul Duncan, Jimin Kim, Francisco Martinez, and Katie Ritchey. I also am working with postdocs Hannah Alpert, Fedor Manin, and Benjamin Schweinhart.
My former PhD students: Andrew Newman (2018) is a postdoc at Technische Universität Berlin. Érika Roldán (2018) is a lecturer and researcher at Ohio State. Kyle Parsons (2017) is a data scientist at Root Insurance. Greg Malen (2016) is a postdoc at Duke University.
In Fall 2018, I am teaching MATH 6501.
In Spring 2018, I taught Math 4575 and Math 6502.
In Fall 2016, I helped organize the ICERM Semester Program on "Topology in Motion".
In Summer 2016, I helped organize the conference TGDA@OSU 2016.
In 2012, I was awarded an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship.
