CV Research Statement, Teaching Philosophy

I am a senior postdoctoral fellow at Weizmann. My research concerns the interplay between low dimensional topology, geometry, dynamics, and algebra. Specifically, I am interested in geometric transitions of certain subgroups of matrix lie groups, dynamics and compactifications of boundaries of symmetric spaces and buildings, convex projective structures, Chabauty topology, coarse geometry, and Dessin d'Enfants.
