Ph.D.

I did my doctoral studies at Université de Toulouse III from 2008 to 2011 under the supervision of Jean-Marc Schlenker. Ph.D. thesis: The symplectic geometry of the deformation space of complex projective structures on a surface.

Mathematical software

I have been working on two computer projects in relation to my research:

Circle Packings

This software created by Benjamin Beeker and myself computes and shows circle packings and Riemann conformal mappings.

Read more in the "Software" section here.

Harmony

This is an ongoing project with Jonah Gaster.

This software computes and shows equivariant harmonic maps from the hyperbolic plane \(\mathbb{H}^2\) to hyperbolic 3-space \(\mathbb{H}^3\) (or in the future, more general symmetric spaces).
