    I helped Jennifer Hom run a summer undergraduate research project, in which the students showed that certain twisted torus knots, known to be L-space knots, have knot groups that are not left-orderable. Their paper is available here.

  • Summer 2013: Teaching Assistant, Towards Differential Geometry (Chi Hin Lau)

    I taught talented high school students in Form 4, 5 and 6, in tutorial sessions, to solidify their understanding of concepts such as curvature of a curve, geodesics and Gaußian curvature of a surface. I presented the proof of the Gauß--Bonnet Theorem in the final session.
