Research interests
I work in geometric and combinatorial group theory. I primarily work on projects related to self-similar groups but I am also highly interested in questions for which profinite group theory is a tool. My past projects have been on topics such as branch groups, the congruence subgroup problem, topological finiteness properties, and Higman-Thompson groups. Other topics I am currently working on include residual finiteness growth, bi-reversible automata, p-adic analytic groups, and the Cantor-Bendixson rank. Generators of the first Grigorchuk group

In preparation

  1. Bi-reversible automata generating lamplighter groups, joint with Ben Steinberg
