Research Interests. My research focuses on interesting metric and combinatorial properties of infinite finitely generated groups. Current projects include understanding the notion of medium-scale curvature for Cayley graphs, introduced by Duchin, Bar Natan and Kropholler, and exploring this curvature for standard groups in the literature, such as solvable Baumslag-Solitar groups and Thompson's group F. I am also working on a quasi-isometry classification for iterated solvable Baumslag-Solitar groups, and various projects on automatic and graph automatic groups.
