I am an assistant professor in mathematics at the University of Southern California. I study symplectic and algebraic geometry, and categorical logic.
I completed my PhD at Stanford University under the supervision of Yasha Eliashberg in Symplectic Geometry
Before that, I completed my Master's degree at McGill University under the supervision of Dani Wise in Geometric Group Theory
In previous semesters, I've taught Math 540 (Algebraic Topology) and Math 471 (Linear Algebra).
Counting cycles in labeled graphs: The nonpositive immersion property for one-relator groups (with Dani Wise). 2015. (Preprint)
A Note on Maxima in Random Walks (with Dani Wise). 2016.
Exotic tight contact structures on R4m+1 (with François-Simon Fauteux-Chapleau). 2021.
The ugly truth about simplicial sets.
The first talk of the Fall 2017 HTTCLHIE seminar.
My Master's thesis, which is an expanded version of the paper with Dani Wise (above) about counting cycles in labeled graphs.
My PhD thesis on contact homology for open manifolds.
Here is a great emacs package for writing LaTeX in emacs (in addition to the indispensable Auctex package).
It automatically adds “newcommand” and “usepackage” statments to your file, based on a global file you maintain with command definitions.
