About me

I am an assistant professor in the mathematics department at the University of Texas at Austin. I'm also a Clay Research Fellow.

I am interested in geometric topology in dimensions 3–5, especially questions about knotted surfaces in 4-manifolds.

In my free time, I collect Rubik's Cubes and enjoy other puzzles like crosswords and acrostics.

Check out this Quanta article about a paper I co-authored in May 2022.

Things I co-organize

Trisectors Workshop 2024: Connections with Knotted Surfaces at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, 24–28 2024

What's your trick? A non-traditional conference in low-dimensional topology at BIRS, a week-long workshop on clever ideas in topology in August 2024

(and some past links)

Geometric Topology Grad and Postdoc Seminar (GT GAPS), a weekly Zoom seminar. This is now organized by Clair Dai, Vivian He, and Aru Mukherjea.

Here's the website for "Topology in Dimension 4.5," a conference I co-organized at BIRS in November 2022. You can access the compiled problems and some of the speakers' lecture notes there.

Other things I'm participating in

2024 Simons Collaboration on New Structures in Low-Dimensional Topology Annual Meeting, 28–29 March 2024

Advanced school: Insights into knots, homologies and physics at the University of Warsaw, 13–17 May 2024

41st Workshops in Geometric Topology at Calvin University: Surfaces in 4-manifolds, 13–15 June 2024

Summer school – New structures in low-dimensional topology at the Renyi Institute, 1–5 July 2024

I am in an AIM SQuaRE with Paolo Aceto, Nickolas Castro, JungHwan Park, and András Stipsicz. We will study Casson–Gordon homotopy 4-balls and related problems.
