### 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.

### Papers:

*Quadratic Thurston maps with few postcritical points*, with G. Kelsey

*Origami, affine maps, and complex dynamics*, with W. Floyd, G. Kelsey, S. Koch, W. Parry, K. Pilgrim, and E. Saenz

(NETmap software available here)*A classification of postcritically finite Newton maps*, with Y. Mikulich and D. Schleicher

*Combinatorial properties of Newton maps*, with Y. Mikulich and D. Schleicher

*Boundary values of the Thurston pullback map* Conform. Geom. Dyn. 17 (2013), 77-118
