Curriculum Vitae (CV)

Waterloo Geometry & Topology group

Waterloo Geometry & Topology Seminar

Waterloo Geometry Working Seminar

Fields Institute Geometric Analysis Colloquium


  • FALL 2019: I am not teaching this term.
  • WINTER 2020: TBA.
  • 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.

    In FALL 2019 I will be on sabbatical leave at the Center of Mathematical Sciences and Applications at Harvard University. I can be contacted by email during this time.

    CRM workshop: Workshop on Special Geometries on Riemannian Manifolds
    To be held at UQAM, May 18-22, 2020. More details to come.
