Bio:  I received my Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Maryland - College Park in May 2012, where my advisor was Giovanni Forni. From September 2012 to August 2016, I was an NSF Postdoc and L. E. Dickson Instructor at the Univesity of Chicago, where Alex Eskin was my sponsor (postdoc advisor). For the academic year of 2013 to 2014, I was a postdoc of Artur Avila at the Université Paris 7 - Denis Diderot.

Research Interests:  My research lies at the intersection of Geometry and Dynamical Systems. It primarily concerns translation surfaces, i.e. Riemann surfaces carrying a holomorphic 1-form, and their moduli spaces. In particular, I have studied the Lyapunov exponents of the Teichmüller geodesic flow, and the associated Kontsevich-Zorich cocycle, as well as the geometry of \(\text{SL}_2(\mathbb{R})\) orbit closures.

Dodecahedron Website: Please visit the website dedicated to the results of my joint project with Jayadev Athreya and Pat Hooper.
