This page contains research diretions I am currently involved in and have been involved in. The "Projects" section will hopefully be replaced by a "Publications" section, but right now contains different directions of math that I've explored. Most of the talks have linked notes that I used while giving the talks. A more up-to-date (but less organized) collection is my math blog.
