I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Bucknell University. I work in dynamical systems and am currently interested in thermodynamic formalism as well as problems related to multidimensional symbolic dynamics. My CV is available here.

Teaching

I will be on sabbatical for Fall 2015.
