"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

I am co-organizing the UofT Geometry & Topology seminar.



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.
  Several complete chapters from this book can be found here.
My book Invitation to "Alexandrov geometry: CAT(0) spaces" has been published by Springer.

Workshop on Curvature and Global Shape.

Publications/Preprints (which can also be downloaded here)
