Curriculum Vitae including publications: 

My research is in mathematical physics, specifically general relativity and related problems in Riemannian geometry associated to asymptotically flat and hyperbolic manifolds.  In particular I study black hole solutions to Einstein's equations in four and higher dimensions. Such geometries are of intrinsic interest in the context of Lorentzian and Riemannian geometry as well as in developments in theoretical physics (string theory and the gauge theory-gravity correspondence).

Brief Biographical Statement

After completing my undergraduate degree in physics and mathematics at the University of Toronto, I studied for the Certificate of Advanced Study in Mathematics, Part III of the Mathematics Tripos (equivalent to a Masters' degree in mathematics) at the University of Cambridge. I obtained my Ph.D in 2007 from the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP) at the University of Cambridge. Following this I received an STFC (Science and Technology Research Council of the UK) independent research fellowship, which I held at the University of Nottingham (2006-7) and then in DAMTP at the University of Cambridge. From 2009-11 I held a Pacific Institute of Mathematical Sciences postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Alberta.  In the fall of 2011 I moved to Memorial University for an assistant professorship and was promoted in 2017 to associate professor.
