#### About me:

I am a Milnor lecturer at the Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Stony Brook University. My research interests include complex dynamics, Teichmüller space, self-similar groups, and Thurston's theorem for postcritically finite rational maps. My doctoral thesis was written under the supervision of Kevin Pilgrim at Indiana University.
