About me

I am an NSERC Postdoctoral Fellow and L.E. Dickson RTG Instructor at the University of Chicago working with Benson Farb on interactions between topology and algebraic geometry.

I completed my PhD at the University of British Columbia in 2016 under the supervision of Alexandra Pettet, Lior Silberman and Juan Souto. My Thesis was on The Topology of Representation Varieties.

Before that, I completed my MSc at McGill University in 2012 under the supervision of Mikaël Pichot. My thesis was On CAT(0) aspects of geometric group theory and some applications to geometric superrigidity.
