Research interests
Geometry of metric spaces
(metric embeddings of graphs, groups, and general metric spaces, geometric properties of metric spaces...)
Quantitative metric geometry
(low distortion embeddings of finite metric spaces, probabilistic methods...)
Nonlinear Banach space theory
(nonlinear geometry, Lipschitz/uniform/coarse classification, Ribe Program, differentiability...)
