# Math

I am a Research Assistant Professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago, working with Laura Schaposnik. I did my PhD at the University of Saskatchewan where my advisor was Steven Rayan. I am interested in both mathematics research, and mathematics education.

Research Interests

Broad:

Differential geometry, mathematical physics, algebraic geometry, algebraic topology, condensed matter physics

Specific:

Higgs bundles, topological recursion, spectral curves, quiver varieties, quantum curves, topological insulators, hyperbolic band theory

For a very down to earth explanation of some of my interests, you can listen to this episode of the Learn Real Good podcast on which I was featured:
