I am an assistant professor (tenure track) in the department of mathematics at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. My research is partially supported by the US national science foundation's CAREER award: DMS- 2240136.
Previously, I was affiliated with the University of Vienna, EPFL in Lausanne and the Korea institute of advanced study in Seoul. I obtained my Ph.D. in Mathematics at Cornell University in 2015 under the supervision of Justin Moore and Tim Riley.
I work in the area of topological and combinatorial group theory. I have studied various families of groups acting on the circle. Some of my recent work has been focused on the construction and study of finitely generated and finitely presented simple groups of homeomorphisms of 1-manifolds.
