## Background

PhD, Princeton University, 1994 (Advisor: W.P. Thurston)

## Research

My interests include geometric group theory; low-dimensional topology; the interaction of differential geometry, Lie groups and their discrete subgroups; nonpositive curvature; as well as various interactions between topology, representation theory, algebraic geometry and number theory (especially concentrating on various moduli spaces, e.g. of polynomials, rational maps, Riemann surfaces, etc).
