"God put me on Earth to accomplish a certain number of things. Right now I am so far behind I will never die."

--Bill Watterson
Anyone who cannot cope with Mathematics is not fully human. At best he is a tolerable subhuman who has learned to wear shoes, bathe, and not make messes in the house.

Teaching:



Research Interests: I'm interested in global Riemannian geometry. More specifically, I'm interested in convergence with lower sectional and Ricci curvature bounds.
Here are the notes from my lectures at
SMS 2011 Summer School on “Metric Measure Spaces: Geometric and Analytic Aspects”.
I'm currently working on a book on spaces with curvature bounded below and above together with Stephganie Alexander  and Anton Petrunin.
Here is a section on definitions of Alexandrov spaces and the proof of the globalization theorem from this book.

Workshop on Curvature and Global Shape.
