I am an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at the University of Alabama in the Department of Mathematics.

My research is in the areas of geometry and topology of low dimensional manifolds and symplectic and contact topology and Heegaard-Floer homology.

I moved to the University of Alabama in August 2016. Previously, I was a Whyburn Instructor at the University of Virginia from 2013-2016, and before that was a CRM postdoc in Montreal, Canada from 2012-2013. I received my PhD in mathematics from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2012. My supervisor was John B. Etnyre. I was a visiting scientist at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Bonn from May-August 2014, and a member of Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in Berkeley from January-June 2010.
