Biography

Born: Los Angeles

Employment: AT&T Research Labs in New Jersey 

My research area is a branch of mathematics called geometric group theory. The area lies somewhere in the intersection of the more broad fields of geometry, group theory, and topology. My primary interests are CAT(0) spaces, Coxeter groups, Artin groups, and mapping class groups.
