I am a postdoc at the Technion. I completed my PhD at McGill, defending my thesis in November 2016. My supervisor was Dani Wise.

My research interests lie within geometric group theory, hyperbolic geometry, and low dimensional topology. In particular, I spend a lot of time working with CAT(0) cube complexes. Here is my CV.

I have a page on the arxiv.

I maintain a blog, No Bigons, where I write about mathematics and travel among other things.

Here are some some books which I think are worth reading. I recommend highly A Good Read on BBC Radio 4.

The top picture of me and the bronze likeness of Weyl was a selfie taken at the ETH, Zurich. The second picture of me giving a talk in Regensberg was taken by Stefan Friedl
