Check out some of my activities during through 2014

L^2 (Lafayette-Lehigh) Geometry-Topology Seminar

The L^2 Geometry-Topology Seminar is co-organized by Ethan Berkove, John Meier, and me, in conjunction with faculty from Lehigh. Since 2006, the seminar has been held annually on a Saturday in the winter/spring. The 2014 seminar marked the first time the event was co-sponsored by Lafayette College, Lehigh University, and LVAIC (Lehigh Valley Association of Independent Colleges).

The Spring 2017 Lafayette-Lehigh Geometry-Topology Seminar will be held Saturday March 25, in Pardee 217, with the following speakers: Renato Bettiol (U. Penn.), Emily Dryden (Bucknell), Jason Manning (Cornell), Thomas Church (Stanford/IAS). More information to come soon!

The Spring 2016 Lafayette-Lehigh Geometry-Topology Seminar was held Saturday March 5, in Pardee 217, with the following speakers: Xiuxiong Chen (Stony Brook), Vidit Nanda (U. Penn.), Genevieve Walsh (Tufts) and Xin Zhou (MIT).

The Spring 2015 Lafayette-Lehigh Geometry-Topology Seminar was held Saturday March 21, in Pardee 217, with the following speakers: Moon Duchin (Tufts), Fernando Schwartz (U. Tennessee, Knoxville) and Sam Taylor (Yale).

The Spring 2014 Lafayette-Lehigh Geometry-Topology Seminar was held Saturday March 15, in Pardee 217, with the following speakers: Jason Behrstock (CUNY-Lehman), Christine Breiner (Fordham University) and Christina Tønnesen-Friedman (Union College).

The Spring 2013 Lafayette-Lehigh Geometry-Topology Seminar was held Saturday March 23, in Pardee 217, with the following speakers Vincent Bonini (Cal. Poly. State Univ.), Andrew Cooper (University of Pennsylvania) and Cynthia Curtis (The College of New Jersey).

The Spring 2012 Lafayette-Lehigh Geometry-Topology Seminar was held Saturday March 24, in Pardee 217, with the following speakers: Adam Pigott (Bucknell), Radmila Sazdanovic (University of Pennsylvania) and Valentino Tosatti (Columbia).

The Spring 2011 Lafayette-Lehigh Geometry-Topology Seminar was held on Saturday, March 26, in Pardee 217, with the following speakers: Bob Gilman (Stevens Institute of Technology), Lan-Hsuan Huang (Columbia University), and Jeff Jauregui (University of Pennsylvania).

REU

I have supervised REU students during the 2005, 2007 and 2009 summers at Lafayette. The general topic for my groups has been differential geometry, with an eye toward general relativity. Please see the link below for more information about the Lafayette program.
