Visitor Information

I'm a low-dimensional topologist specializing in the topology of smooth and symplectic 4-manifolds, using Lefschetz fibrations and tools from Heegaard Floer homology and gauge theory. I arrived here at Virginia in the fall of 2006.



I am an organizer for the UVa geometry seminar.

My current work is focused on the study of smooth 3- and 4-dimensional manifolds, and contact and symplectic structures on them, using Lefschetz fibrations and related structures. Central tools are Heegaard Floer homology and the associated invariants of 4-manifolds, as well as techniques from symplectic topology and geometry.

The following is a list of my preprints and publications:
