## Teaching

In Fall 2024 I am teaching:

- MAT 464/1342,
*Riemannian geometry*(a cross-listed undergraduate/masters level course) - MAT MAT1351,
*Topics in Homotopy Theory: Rational homotopy theory with geometric applications*(a graduate topics course)

At UCSB, I taught:

- CCS Math 120 TC,
*Topological combinatorics*(a class in the College of Creative Studies based on Matoušek's book*Using the Borsuk–Ulam theorem*, Spring 2024) - Math 227C,
*Topics in geometric and algebraic topology*(this topics course focused on the geometry of nilpotent groups, Spring 2024) - Math 221B,
*Homotopy theory*(a graduate course focusing on the fundamental group, Ch. 0 and 1 of Hatcher's textbook, Winter 2024) - Math 113,
*Non-Euclidean geometry*(Fall 2023) - Math 227C,
*Topics in geometric and algebraic topology*(this topics course focused on quasi-isometry invariants in geometric group theory, Spring 2022) -
This was an IBL course of my own design. The students were mainly advanced first-years who had taken an introduction to proofs, but no proof-based linear algebra or analysis courses. It focused on symmetry groups, i.e. groups acting by isometries on metric spaces, starting with isometries of the Euclidean plane. Feel free to contact me if you would like to see the course materials and my thoughts about how to do it better next time.
