I am currently working towards a PhD under the supervision of Alexandra Pettet and
Juan Souto at UBC. So far, this has lead to a paper on The Topology of Nilpotent Representations in Reductive Groups and their Maximal Compact Subgroups.
Previously, I completed my MSc in Pure Mathematics under the supervision of Mikaël Pichot at McGill University. My thesis was On CAT(0) aspects of geometric group theory and some applications to geometric superrigidity.
I am an organizer of the 2014 PIMS Young Researchers Conference in Mathematics and Statistics happening June 2-4.
