My research interests include geometric group theory, dynamical systems, and fractal geometry. See my my list of publications or my research page for more information. I am currently co-supervising a PhD student (Davide Perego) with Francesco Matucci at the University of Milano–Bicocca, and I am eager to begin supervising PhD students here at the University of Glasgow.


This year I am teaching 4H/5E: Algebraic and Geometric Topology (view on Moodle) and 2F: Groups, Transformations, and Symmetries (view on Moodle). See my teaching page for information on past courses I have taught.

About Me

I received my PhD from Cornell University in 2004, and I have previously served as a member of staff at Cornell University, at the University of St Andrews here in Scotland, at Bard College in upstate New York, and at Texas A&M University. I have been at the University of Glasgow since August 2022.
