Here is the Project Summary for my NSF grant running from 2013-2016. It is a very brief, non-technical description of the research performed under that grant, and gives a glimpse of what kind of problems I have been working on recently. Much more detailed and more technical descriptions can be found under the "Vita" link below.

Vita: Here is a copy of my vita, a list of my papers (no abstracts) and other information related to my research.

Harmonic Measure: Algorithms and Applications my contribution to the proceedings of the 2018 ICM in Rio de Janeiro. This gives a survey of topics involving planar harmonic measure, roughly from Makarov's theorems in the 1980's up to the present, with an emphasis on topics of interest to me: dimension of harmonic measure, rectifiability, hyperbolic 3-manifolds and Klienian groups, conformal
