Research Interests

My research is on symplectic geometry, more specifically the kind that involves hamiltonian group actions on symplectic manifolds. I have been working on folded symplectic structures, in particular origami manifolds, and venturing into Poisson geometry via the study of b-manifolds. And I really like toric things in general and Delzant polytopes. I was a graduate student at MIT under Victor Guillemin and I finished my PhD in June 2010. After that I was a lecturer at the MIT Math Department, a postdoc (H.C.Wang Assistant Professor) at Cornell University, and a member at the Institute for Advanced Study. Now I am at Fordham University.
