  • My main research interests lie in geometric group theory, low-dimensional topology, and the study of metric spaces of non-positive curvature, as you will see from the summary of my work given in the following items.

    Oxford Seminars

  • Topology (Mondays)

  • Geometry and Analysis (Mondays)

  • Algebra (Tuesdays)

    Some of the meetings that I help to organise

  • The William Rowan Hamilton Geometry and Topology Workshop, Dublin, annually
  • Oberwolfach: Geometric Topology, January 2015
  • Clay Workshop: Asymptotic Invariants of Groups, Oxford, April 2015
  • Oberwolfach: Non-positive curvature and geometric structures in group theory, April 2010 and 2013
