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.
