Most of my work is inspired or influenced by hyperbolic geometry.

I co-organize the Geometry/Topology seminar at BC. A schedule can be found here.


A set of notes on Euclidean and Non-Euclidean geometry that I wrote that are suitable for students with only a multivariable calculus background are available here.
