## LinksAt the University of Bristol, I am a member of the Probability, Analysis and Dynamics and the Pure Mathematics institutes. Previously, from 2011-2013 I was a postdoc at the University of Oxford working with Cornelia Drutu and other members in the topology group. Before that, I was a J.L.Doob research assistant professor at the University of Illinois from 2008 until the end of 2010. I was a graduate student at the University of Michigan (2003-2008), where I worked with Bruce Kleiner. I also spent most of 2006-8 visiting the mathematics department at Yale. Before that, I was an undergraduate at the University of Edinburgh. |
