Research

I am interested in geometry and topology in low-dimensions, with a special focus on their mutual interactions. A lot of what I think about originates here. My research is partially supported by the NSF grant New directions in monopole Floer homology (DMS-2203498).


I co-organize the Symplectic Geometry and Gauge Theory Seminar and the Geometric Topology seminar.
