I have moved to the    University of California in Davis


Research interests:

Low dimensional geometry and topology. Kleinian groups and hyperbolic manifolds in all dimensions.

Representation varieties of finitely generated groups.

Configuration spaces of elementary geometric objects like arrangements and mechanical linkages.

Fundamental groups of Kahler manifolds and smooth algebraic varieties.

Manifolds of nonpositive curvature and quasi-isometries. Geometric group theory.
