Tim first became interested in studying Mathematics while a student at Vassar College learning Number Theory, and enjoys combining abstract thinking and concrete examples to visualize problems. As an undergraduate, he served as a peer leader in the Supplemental Instruction program, and helped implement a similar test program at York College of CUNY while in graduate school. After graduate school, Tim served as a teaching assistant for a summer REU program at Columbia University, and then was a Postdoctoral Associate at University of Nebraska (2014-2017). In Nebraska, he supervised an undergraduate thesis and volunteered with the All Girls All Math program geared towards encouraging high-school aged girls interested in STEM. His area of research is geometric and combinatorial group theory as well as low-dimensional topology. His work frequently features overlap with combinatorics, probability, and computer science.
