  • I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Pure Mathematics at the University of Waterloo, and a member of the Geometry & Topology research group. My area of research is differential geometry and geometric analysis. Specifically, I work on manifolds with U(m), SU(m), G2, or Spin(7) structures. This includes: the construction of torsion-free compact examples; the study of their moduli spaces and the extra geometric structures on such moduli spaces; conical singularities of such manifolds; calibrated submanifolds; Donaldson-Thomas connections in G2 and Spin(7) geometry; properties of special torsion classes; and geometric evolution equations in the context of special holonomy and calibrations.

    I am on the Editorial Board for the journal Pure and Applied Mathematics Quarterly published by International Press. I encourage you to submit your high quality manuscripts to PAMQ for consideration, and to select me as the handling editor if the content matches my research expertise.

    CRM sponsored Workshop on Special Geometries on Riemannian Manifolds, to be held at UQAM, May 17-21, 2021.

    New book on Lectures and Surveys on G2-manifolds and Related Topics, coming from Springer in July 2020.
