For the academic year 2017-2018, I will not be teaching and instead will spend the year serving as Dean of Curriculum. I regularly teach Differential Geometry, Abstract Algebra, Multivariable Calculus, and Calculus I, among other things.


My current research interests include the differential, spectral, and metric geometry of orbifolds.
