My research concerns the Gromov-Hausdorff, Metric Measure and Intrinsic Flat Convergence of Riemannian Manifolds and Metric Measure Spaces with applications to General Relativity and the Topology of Riemannian Manifolds. I was born in New York City, attended Hunter High School and then New York University. I completed my doctorate at Courant in 1996 with Jeff Cheeger (also taking courses with Peter Lax, Fanghua Lin, Louis Nirenberg, and Gang Tian). I had a first postdoc at Harvard with Shing-Tung Yau and a second postdoc at Johns Hopkins where I worked with William Minicozzi and Joel Spruck. I then returned to New York City taking an assistant professorship at CUNY's Lehman College where I am now a Full Professor. Since 2003 I have been a member of the doctoral faculty at the CUNY Graduate Center.
