I am a Ph.D. candidate in my sixth year at CUNY Graduate Center studying Geometric Group Theory under Jason Behrstock. In the Fall I will join the Mathematics Department at The University of Nebraska as a postdoctoral fellow under the mentorship of Susan Hermiller and Mark Brittenham.

In Spring 2014 I am teaching one section of Math 120 - Precalculus in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at York College. Students should refer to the My Math Lab page for information about their class.

**Research**

The primary focus of my research is Geometric Group Theory. In particular, I am interested in links between Group Theory and Low Dimensional Topology, especially as it is embodied in the theory of Stable Commutator Length. Currently, I am working on computations of SCL in Right-angled Artin Groups by attacking the problem for cyclic graphs of groups with free abelian vertex groups, as well as SCL in knot and link complements.

In Summer 2013 I ran a seminar on Random Groups at the Graduate Center.
