I am a third year PhD candidate working 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 which was published in Geometry & Topology.
Previously, I completed my MSc in 2012 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.
