Research

My area of research is geometric group theory, the study of groups through their actions on topological metric spaces. Some of my favorite topics are CAT(0) spaces, cube complexes, hyperbolic and acylindrically hyperbolic groups, boundaries of groups, Artin groups, Coxeter groups, and automorphism groups.
