**Teaching**

In Fall 2020, I am teaching Multivariable Calculus and Differential Geometry. I regularly teach Differential Geometry, Abstract Algebra, Multivariable Calculus, and Calculus I, among other things.

**Research**

My current research interests include the differential, spectral, and metric geometry of orbifolds. In this short interview, I talk a bit about geometry and the work that I do (31:47).

**Other Interests**

Along with teaching and research, I enjoy running, reading, spending time with my family, and meditation and ethics. When things are quieter, I also like to draw.
