I am currently Szegő Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Stanford University. My research is in topology, especially low-dimensional topology, and often uses representation theory. I am especially interested in moduli spaces, broadly defined. My CV is available. I am an organizer of the Topology Seminar. My office is 383Y in Sloan Hall (Building 380, on the Main Quad).
This winter I taught Math 113, "Linear Algebra and Matrix Theory". Last fall I taught Math 283, a graduate topics course on representation stability. The course surveyed recent work in representation stability, including FI-modules and their application to Putman's theorem on central stability for homology of congruence subgroups.
