My research focuses on geometry and dynamics, often involving moduli spaces like Mg, the variety whose points correspond to the choice of a complex structure on a closed orientable genus g surface.Expand
Singular Vectors on Fractals and Projections of Self-similar Measures
Singular vectors are those for which the quality of rational approximations provided by Dirichlet’s Theorem can be improved by arbitrarily small multiplicative constants. We provide an upper bound onExpand

Sum of Lyapunov exponents of the Hodge bundle with respect to the Teichmüller geodesic flow
We compute the sum of the positive Lyapunov exponents of the Hodge bundle with respect to the Teichmuller geodesic flow. The computation is based on the analytic Riemann-Roch Theorem and uses aExpand

Homogeneous approximation for flows on translation surfaces
We consider how quickly a typical point returns to neighborhoods of itself under the flow in a typical direction on a translation surface.

Topological transitivity of billiards in polygons
Consider a billiard in a polygon Q⊂R2 having all angles commensurate with π. For the majority of initial directions, density of every infinite semitrajectory in configuration space is proved. AlsoExpand
Exceptional directions for the Teichmüller geodesic flow and Hausdorff dimension
We prove that for every flat surface $\omega$, the Hausdorff dimension of the set of directions in which Teichmuller geodesics starting from $\omega$ exhibit a definite amount of deviation from theExpand
The set of non-uniquely ergodic d-IETs has Hausdorff codimension 1/2
We show that the set of not uniquely ergodic d-IETs has Hausdorff dimension d-3/2 (in the (d-1)-dimension space of d-IETs) for d>4. For d=4 this was shown by Athreya-Chaika and for d=2,3 the set isExpand
