**Specialties:**-
Topology

Algebra

Geometry

**Research Interests:***Geometric topology, Mapping class groups*Most of my interests are concerned with understanding things geometrically or understanding geometric objects. At the moment I working with mapping class groups from an algebro-geometric point of view.

I also have a mild side interest on set-theoretic topology and the foundations of mathematics.

My research as an undergraduate was in the areas of graph theory and design theory.

**Areas of Interest:**Mapping class groups

Low dimensional manifolds

Moduli spaces and arithmetic geometry
