I am a professor at Wellesley College. Previously, I have been a visitor at Brown University and enjoyed a Radcliffe Institute Fellowship. I also taught one semester at the University of Arizona. My first position was a John Wesley Young Research Instructor, with Carolyn Gordon, at Dartmouth College. I did my PhD with Wolfgang Ziller at the University of Pennsylvania, studying Homogeneous Einstein Metrics. My mathematical origins are as a happy undergraduate at Wellesley College. As you can see, I have come full circle.

My research is in Riemannian geometry, especially the global geometry of Lie groups and homogeneous spaces. I study invariant metrics with prescribed curvature constraints, such as Einstein metrics, soliton metrics, and positive curvature metrics.
