Hello!

RomanI am a fourth-year Ph.D. student in mathematics at the University of Iowa, working with Maggy Tomova. I enjoy thinking about low dimensional topology, mostly problems about surfaces and three-space. Right now, I am studying four-manifolds via handle decompositions and trisections.

I obtained my bachelor’s degree in Mathematics from the University of Guanajuato in Mexico, where I first learned about topology under the supervision of Enrique Ramirez and Mario Eudave.

More details can be found in my CV.
