I am interested in rigidity phenomena in geometry and topology, a topic that lies on the intersection of geometric topology, differential geometry, theory of Lie groups and algebraic groups, dynamics and ergodic theory, and metric geometry. For more about my work, please visit my Research page. In 2015 I obtained my Ph.D. at the University of Chicago, where my advisor was Benson Farb.

Research interests:

Differential geometry
Geometric structures on manifolds
Geometric topology
Discrete subgroups of Lie groups

My CV is available.
