I am currently a visitor at the CUNY Graduate Centre under the Einstein Chair professorship in mathematics. I am also the lead researcher in the theory group at the VERSES Research Lab. Previously, I have been at Stony Brook University and MIT.

For a summary of my current research, see this page (/research). I am broadly interested in topology and how it threads through different areas of algebra, analysis, and arithmetic. I am often motivated by objects or questions in mathematical and statistical physics. I am particularly interested in probability theory and its applications.

My articles (with bibliographic information) can be found on the arXiv. Some of the talks I have given are viewable here (/talks). Advocacy and press relating to my work can be found here (/other). I maintain a blog about my work, amongst other things. I can also be found on MathOverflow and with ORCiD 0000-0002-7907-7611. Other useful links: bioRxiv, Google Scholar, Wikipedia.
