About me

Starting in September 2016 I will be an NSERC Postdoctoral Fellow and L.E. Dickson Instructor at the University of Chicago.

Currently, I am a fourth year PhD candidate working under the supervision of Alexandra Pettet, Lior Silberman and Juan Souto at the University of British Columbia. My Thesis is on The Topology of Representation Varieties.

Previously, I completed my MSc 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.

As an undergraduate, I worked in algebraic combinatorics with Ada Chan, geometric group theory with Olga Kharlampovich and Coxeter groups with Christophe Hohlweg.
