I am a professor in the math department at Ohio State University. My research interests include topological and geometric combinatorics, stochastic topology, topological statistical mechanics, and geometric group theory. I am also interested in topological data analysis and applications of algebraic topology in general.

I am currently advising PhD students Paul Duncan, Jimin Kim, Francisco Martinez, and Katie Ritchey. I am also working with postdocs Hannah Alpert, Fedor Manin, and Benjamin Schweinhart.

My former PhD students: Andrew Newman (2018) is a postdoc at Technische Universität Berlin. Érika Roldán (2018) is a visiting assistant professor at Ohio State. Kyle Parsons (2017) is a data scientist at Root Insurance. Greg Malen (2016) is a postdoc at Duke University.

In the 2019–20 academic year, I will be on sabbatical in Berlin, supported in part by the Simons Foundation.
