About Me

I am currently a Postdoctoral Lecturer at Northwestern University. My research is in complex dynamical systems, which is the study of the behavior of points under iteration of a holomorphic function. I'm specifically interested in studying the complicated fractal structure of parameter spaces for singular perturbations of polynomials (see top image below). These are analogous to the well known Mandelbrot set for quadratic polynomial maps.
