Research:I study dynamical systems on fractals that have circular properties but are not actual circles. I use ideas from both topology and number theory to reach results.
- I enjoy puzzles, always working the sudoku puzzles in airplane magazines when I fly.
- I can solve Rubik’s Cube, but not in any sort of speedy way.
- I am an avid hiker, having completed all 48 New Hampshire summits over 4,000 feet in elevation, and working my way through the 14,000-foot peaks of Colorado.
- I have run three marathons, and hope to run at least one more, faster than the first three!
