 Research Interests:
I am interested in the geometry and topology of various moduli spaces of curves and abelian varieties, with an emphasis on applications to mapping class groups of surfaces. I am currently focusing on applications to the study of Torelli groups, especially in genus 3. One aspect of this is to determine whether or not certain hyperelliptic Torelli groups are finitely generated. This study involves the use of a wide range of tools, including Hodge theory, stratified Morse theory, and Teichmüller theory, in addition to standard techniques from complex geometry and geometric topology.
 Areas of Interest:
complex geometry (analytic/algebraic) geometric topology
