I am not teaching this spring.

I am running a SUMRY project in Summer 2021 on cylinder configurations in translation surfaces; see the SUMRY webpage for more information.

Together with Ian Adelstein, I have co-mentored multiple undergraduate research projects through Yale’s SUMRY program.

Summer 2019:
Group members: Krish Desai, Anthony Ji, and Grace Zdeblick
Project: Oblivious points on translation surfaces (paper)

Summer 2018:
Group members: Arthur Azvolinsky, Josh Hinman, and Alex Schlesinger
Project: Minimizing geodesics on doubled polygons (paper)


I am also a regular mentor for the Yale DRP. I have led projects on the following topics with the following people:

  • Braid groups (Spring 2020)
    Quinn Crawford, Dawit Mengesha, Rajiv Nelakanti, and Akiva Weinberger
  • Riemann surfaces and dessins d’enfants (Spring 2019)
    Alex Cohen and Zach Effman
  • An introduction to geometric group theory (Fall 2018)
    Jack Brownrigg and Sonali Durham
