Interests

Broadly speaking, I am interested in topology and geometry. Specifically, I'd like to know more about the interactions between contact/symplectic geometry and topology.

Here's some relevant expository writing:

About

I'm a third-year graduate student in the mathematics department at UCLA. Before UCLA I studied at the University of Texas at Tyler.

I live in the San Fernando Valley region of Los Angeles with my wife Kristin.
