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


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.


I am teaching Math 295 in Fall 2019.
I am a faculty advisor for Math Club. (Stop by! It's on Thursdays at 4pm in the Nesbitt room.)
I help organize Bagel Sundays in the Math Department - stop by on Sundays at 1pm in the Math Atrium!
I am also a faculty advisor for FEMMES, and I like to help out with Wolverine Pathways.
I also organize Math Mondays in Ypsi, where a bunch of us do math with students at Ypsi Middle School on Monday mornings. Please email me if you are interested in joining us!

Upcoming talks and travel:

Stephen, Yunus, and I started a Math Corps site at U(M) last Summer!
I am giving a colloquium talk at Vanderbilt University in October 2019.
I am giving a colloquium talk at Duke University in October 2019.
I am participating in the Algorithms in Complex Dynamics and Mapping Class Groups Workshop at ICERM in November 2019.
We are organizing a Public Lecture by Roger Nelsen, on November 6 at U(M).
