**Please visit my new faculty profile page.**

Many of the deepest mysteries in topology concern spaces of dimension 3 and 4, which are just at the edge of our ability to visualize. My work uses tools of differential geometry and analysis, some of it inspired by physics, to study these spaces. Webpage
