My research is in low dimensional topology. I am interested in studying topological properties and algebraic invariants of spaces of dimension 3 or less. Currently, I study the classification of topologically stratified spaces called 2-stratifolds. A 2-stratifold is a space locally modeled on a 2-dimensional space where n-sheets meet. A local picture of a 2-stratifold is seen above.

While the preprint is being written, here are a few items on stratifolds that I've made in the past year.
