I am a second year PhD student in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Toronto. My advisor is Kasra Rafi. My research interests are in low-dimensional topology and geometric group theory.

Here is my CV.

I support the statement of inclusiveness.

I am interested in low-dimensional topology and geometric group theory. My research interests include

- Curve Counting

- Hyperbolicity in Out(Fn)
- Random Walks on Groups
- Generalizations of the Gromov boundary

2. Random walks on groups and superlinear divergent geodesics [pdf]

(with
Kunal Chawla, Inhyeok Choi, Kasra Rafi)

1. Equivalent topologies on the contracting boundary [pdf]
