Kazimir Malevich.
Painterly Realism of a Football Player – Color Masses in the 4th Dimension.



I am a postdoc in the math department at MSU. During the 2017-2018 academic year I will be visiting the Rényi Institute of Mathematics in Budapest, Hungary. I obtained my PhD from the University of Texas at Austin in 2015.


My research is in low-dimensional topology. In particular, I am interested in the theory of smooth 4–manifolds and its connections to knot theory and 3–manifolds.

You can download my papers on the arXiv, or download my CV.


During the 2016-2017 academic year I taught three sections of MTH 132.
