I am an Arthur F. Thurnau 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 not teaching in Winter 2022.
I am a faculty advisor for Math Club, and I am a faculty advisor for the AWM Graduate Student Chapter at U(M). I am also a faculty advisor for the student group FEMMES - check out all of the awesome things they are doing!
I also organize Math Mondays in Ypsi, where a bunch of us do math with students at Ypsi Community Middle School on Monday mornings. Our visits to the middle school have been temporarily replaced by virtual Super Saturdays. If you are interested in joining us, please email me!

Math Corps:

I am proud to be the Director of the Math Corps at U(M), a summer camp for middle schoolers and high school mentors from Ypsilanti and Detroit. We faithfully follow the educational and mentoring practices of the Math Corps, a phenomenal program that started at Wayne State University in 1992. (Watch the video!). We are busy getting things ready for Summer 2022!

Upcoming talks and travel(?) :

I am organizing a semester in Complex Dynamics at MSRI in Spring 2022.
I am co-orgainizing the Connections Workshop at MSRI in February 2022.
I am speaking at the Introductory Workshop at MSRI in February 2022.
I am speaking at the MAA Golden Section Meeting in February 2022.
I am speaking in the Distinguished Women in Mathematics Colloquium Series at Oklahoma State University in April 2022.
I am organizing a Pecha Kucha for a fabulous birthday conference in June 2022!
I am speaking at the Equidistribution and Arithmetic Dynamics conference at OSU in June 2022.
I am participating in the Simons Symposium on Algebraic, Complex and Arithmetic Dynamics in August 2022.
