RESEARCH INTERESTS:

My research focuses on the interplay between geometry, topology, and group theory, particularly in the presence of non-positive curvature. Here are all of my completed projects (in reverse chronological order). The work done here is partly supported by the National Science Foundation under grants DMS-0606002 (2006-2009), DMS-0906483 (2009-2012), DMS-1207782 (2012-2015), DMS-1510640 (2015-2018), and by an Alfred P.

Papers being revised:


These papers are complete, but are currently being revised in order to improve the results they contain. Be aware that the results in these papers, while correct, are definitely not optimal. I also include [in brackets] the improvements I believe can be done on the existing results (and which are currently being worked on).


Papers not intended for publication:



Work in progress:


The following projects are in various stages of typing. Preprints will be available as soon as they get completed. The descriptions below reflect, to the best of my knowledge, the results that will be appearing in the completed papers. Where possible, I state [in brackets] the work that still remains to be done on the various projects. The projects are organized roughly according to proximity to completion (closest to finished are at the top of the list).
