Research

My research generally deals with symplectic topology, the study of global questions relating to spaces equipped with the geometric structures that lie at the root of classical mechanics.  


Teaching

This semester, I am teaching a topics course on area-preserving maps of surfaces and symplectic geometry; here are a syllabus and lecture notes for the start of the course.

Here are links to webpages for older courses (for more recent courses I have generally used ELC instead of a webpage).
