Starting in October 2017, I will be 'chargée de recherche CNRS' at the Université de Rennes I, in France.

Since September 2016, I am an L.E. Dickson Instructor at the University of Chicago.

From September 2013 to August 2016, I was a PhD student in France, at University Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris 6), under the direction of Frédéric Le Roux.

Here is a CV.

Research interests:
  • Low dimensional topology, geometry and dynamics
  • Interactions with geometric group theory
  • Interactions with complex dynamics

  • Some pictures related to my work: a braid in the plane minus a Cantor set, two cliques of high-filling rays (realized with Alden Walker's program) and a geometric representation of the plane minus a Cantor set.
