Personal Website


I am a mathematician at Baylor University.  I did my doctorate in 2002 at Oxford, and I have been at Baylor ever since.  My research lies in the study of the topology of pathogical spaces that arise in chaotic systems.  The image above is a Julia set of a complex quadratic map.  The top slice is a dendrite.  Recently I’ve begun studying the dynamics of maps which generate dendritic Julia sets like this.

I am married with three kids, Max, Milo, and Sam.

I love college football and college basketball, especially the Baylor Bears.  I am an obsessive runner.  I’ve done several marathons and ultra-marathons, and lots of half-marathons and 5ks.
