For the full list of talks, please see my CV at the front page. For a video interview, see Miscellaneous page.

I am giving invited talks at JMM 2023 (in Boston) and FoCM 2023 (in Paris) in the near future. I will be at MFO Oberwolfach, Germany in January 2023, and at SMRI, Australia, and the University of Queensland in July-September 2023.

With John Loftin and Kyle Hayden, we are organizing Distinguished Lectures in Geometry and Topology at Rutgers-Newark starting in 2023, funded by NSF CAREER grant. More information coming soon.

With Eric Sedgwick and Mehdi Yazdi, we are organizing Computational Problems in Low-Dimensional Topology III workshop in April 2023 at Rutgers-Newark, funded by NSF CAREER grant. Workshop webpage.

With Joel Hass and Chaim Even-Zohar we are organizing BIRS workshop “Knot theory informed by random models and experimental data” at BIRS, Canada, in 2024.
