Research interests:

My research area is geometric group theory, with a focus on mapping class groups of surfaces. I am particularly interested in braid groups and their representations, and in Torelli groups.

Papers:

  • On the congruence subgroups of braid groups. Preprint in preparation.
  • The normal closure of a power of a half-twist has infinite index in the mapping class group of the punctured sphere. (Arxiv)
