Research Overview

My research interests essentially lie at the intersection of geometry and dynamics. In general I am interested in how the geometry of a space can affect the types of dynamical systems that live on that space. More specifically I am interested in the various dynamical systems associated to translation surfaces and their moduli.

For more detailed information, see my research statement.
