In Spring 2024 I am teaching Math 221c.

My research is in topology, especially "diagrammatic algebra". You can look at my list of publications, or preprints on the arxiv, or my infrequently-updated cv.

I keep a random collection of syllabi of courses I have taught. (Sometimes people need them for course transfers.)

Once upon a time I wrote a C program to search for an element of the kernel of Burau4.

I live in Santa Barbara with Morgan, Jasper, Romeo, and Zoë.
