## John Mackay## Post-Doctoral Research AssistantMathematical Institute,
Only a few minutes walk from Edinburgh into the Pentland hills... (Follow the link and zoom in for a change of perspective.) ## ResearchI am interested in many things geometric; in particular, analysis on metric spaces, geometric group theory, hyperbolic groups ... ## Papers and preprints- Existence of quasi-arcs, Proc.

## LinksAt the University of Oxford, I am primarily working with Cornelia Drutu and other members in the topology group. Before coming here, I was a J.L.Doob research assistant professor at the University of Illinois from 2008 until the end of 2010. I was a graduate student at the University of Michigan (2003-2008), where I worked with Bruce Kleiner. I also spent most of 2006-8 visiting the mathematics department at Yale. Before that, I was an undergraduate at the University of Edinburgh. |
