Welcome!

I am an Associate Professor in the math department at the University of Michigan.

Research:

I work primarily in complex analysis, Teichmüller theory, and complex dynamics (in one and several variables).
Here is my CV, and here are my papers.

Teaching:

I am teaching Math 636, the Topology and Dynamics of Rational Maps, together with Dylan Thurston this semester.
I am a faculty advisor for FEMMES, and I like to help out with Wolverine Pathways.

Upcoming talks and travel:

I am speaking at an AMS sectional meeting on Arithmetic Dynamics, at Northeastern University in April 2018.
I am going to Cornell to visit John Hubbard in May 2018.
I am participating in a small complex dynamics gathering at Northwestern in May 2018.
I am going to Toulouse to work with Xavier Buff in May 2018.
I am giving a colloquium talk at the Topology Students Workshop at Georgia Tech in June 2018.
I am speaking at the Orthogonal Polynomials and Dynamical Systems Conference at the Carlsberg Academy in Copenhagen in August 2018.
I am giving a colloquium talk at the University of Washington in October 2018.
I am organizing the Graduate Research Opportunities for Women conference, at the University of Michigan, together with Karen Smith and Mel Hochster, in October 2018.
I am giving an AMS-MAA Invited Address at the Joint Math Meetings in Baltimore in January 2019.
I am organizing the Illustrating Dynamics and Probability workshop as part of a semester on Illustrating Mathematics at ICERM, together with Jayadev Athreya and Alex Holroyd, in Fall 2019.
