Research

I like to study things like complex hyperplane arrangements and braid groups.
I've written some papers, organized some conferences... Here are some recent ones:

On graphic arrangement groups, with M. Falk
Advances in Applied Mathematics, to appear Topological Complexity and Motion Planning
arXiv:1908.07664 Casa Matemática Oaxaca
Oaxaca, Mexico, September 17 - 20, 2020 (online)
Topology of parameterised motion planning algorithms, Co-Organizers: Jesús González and Lucile Vandembroucq
with M. Farber and S. Weinberger
arXiv:2009.06023 AATRN Topological Complexity Seminar
An online seminar focusing on topological complexity and related topics
