I am an INdAM-Marie Curie post-doc fellow (INdAM Fellowship in Mathematics and/or Applications cofunded by Marie Curie).

Previously I was an instructor at University of Toronto Mississauga (Fall 2014).

Previously I was a post-doc in mathematics education at University of Trento, Italy (2012-2014).

My Ph.D. thesis (discussed December 2011) was about the popularization of braid theory.


I am working in low-dimensional topology and visualization under the supervision of Dror Bar-Natan.
