Research

My research interests include three-dimensional topology and knot theory, specifically Heegaard Floer homology and its applications.

More information about my research can be found in my Curriculum Vitae. My research papers are available here.

 

 

Seminars

I coorganize a joint LA Topology Seminar (LaToP) with Francis Bonahon and Aaron Lauda of USC, and Ciprian Manolescu and Ko Honda of UCLA.

I also organize a reading seminar on Heegaard Floer homology and related topics.

I may attend the following seminars:

Geometry and Topology Seminar at Caltech

Physics and Geometry Seminar at Caltech

Geometry and Topology Seminar at USC

Geometry Seminar at UCLA

 

Teaching

I teach Ma 151a (Algebraic topology) and Ma 191a (Introduction to Heegaard Floer Homology) in Fall 2017.
