I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Ohio State University. I'm interested in various things related to topology, combinatorics, probability, and statistical mechanics. I am currently the PI on an NSF-RTG grant on "Algebraic Topology and its Applications", and also an NSF-CAREER award on "Random spaces and groups".

I currently have four PhD students: Andrew Newman, Katie Ritchey, Jessica Zehel at Ohio State, and Érika Roldán Roa at CIMAT. I am also working with postdocs Hannah Alpert, Fedor Manin, and Benjamin Schweinhart.

My former PhD student Greg Malen is now a postdoc at Duke. Kyle Parsons will be continuing as a lecturer and researcher at Ohio State in Fall 2017, and plans on working on industry in the long term.

In Spring 2017, I taught Math 4575 and Math 6502.

In Fall 2016, I helped organize the ICERM Semester Program on "Topology in Motion".

In Summer 2016, I helped organize the conference TGDA@OSU 2016.

I was awarded an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship in 2012.
