Teaching for

  • I am not teaching in Fall 2017. My courses for Winter 2018 and Spring 2018 are TBA.
  • Notice #1: For the entire month of August 2017, I will be off-campus, visiting the Fields Institute in Toronto as part of the Thematic Program on Geometric Analysis that I am co-organizing. I can be reached by email.
  • Notice #2: During September to December 2017, I will be frequently away, at the Fields Institute. This includes nearly every Wednesday as well as the periods of October 3-5, November 4-10, November 15-17, and December 1-3.
  • 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 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; and geometric evolution equations in the context of special holonomy and calibrations.

  • Fields Institute Thematic Program on Geometric Analysis: Jul-Dec 2017
  • Summer School on Geometric Analysis: July 10-21, 2017
  • Minischool on G2 manifolds and related topics: August 19-20, 2017
  • Workshop on G2 manifolds and related topics: August 21-25, 2017
