I am a research assistant professor and NSF postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Chicago. My research interests include Teichmuller theory, minimal surfaces, Kleinian groups, Higgs bundles and the geometry of character varieties.
