I am a professor of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

My primary research areas are differential geometry, geometric topology, and complex analysis. Most of my research projects focus on moduli spaces of locally homogeneous geometric structures on manifolds, often in cases where complex-analytic techniques can be applied.

I use computer experiments in my research, and I pursue mathematical visualization projects for both research and expository purposes.
