**About Me:**I am currently a Morrey Visiting Assistant Professor at UC Berkeley. Starting in June 2018 I will be an NSF Postdoctoral Fellow, also at UC Berkeley. I received my Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2017, where I studied geometric group theory under the supervision of Tullia Dymarz. Here is a copy of my CV.

**Research interests:**I study geometric group theory and low-dimensional topology. In particular, I am interested in group actions by isometries on hyperbolic spaces, especially so-called acylindrical actions. The kinds of groups I think about include hyperbolic and relatively hyperbolic groups, mapping class groups, Out(F_n), CAT(0) groups, three manifold groups, and many more.

**Berkeley Topology Seminar:**I co-organize the Berkeley Topology Seminar with James Conway. The seminar meets on Wednesdays from 2-3 for an introductory talk in 740 Evans and from 4-5 in 3 Evans for a research talk.
