My field of specialty is Geometric Group Theory, that is the study of groups as geometric objects. More specifically I study algorithmic problems and equations in discrete groups that have large scale non-positive curvature. I also study connections and analogies between group theory and low dimensional topology. I plan to apply this perspective that interweaves discrete geometry and computability to problems in computer and data science.
At Stevens I am also an active member of the Calculus Project, a research effort to determine how to effectively use new teaching technologies and promote reasoning based learning.
