I am an Arthur J. Krener Assistant Professor of Mathematics at the University of California, Davis. My research is in the field of computational and applied topology.

I have lead teams of brilliant people to build organizations that support education, foster communication, and promote community growth.

For my dissertation, I built triangulated high-dimensional objects (simplicial complexes) that have interesting properties and then used them as test objects to improve heuristic algorithms in topological software.

I have a PhD (technically a Dr.rer.nat) from TU Berlin. My doctoral studies were supported by the Berlin Mathematical School. My doctoral supervisors were Frank Lutz and John Sullivan. Konstantin Mischaikow was also on my dissertation committee. I have been advised by Michael JoswigGünter ZieglerBruno Benedetti, and Carsten Lange.
