I am Professor of Mathematics in the
at Tufts University.

I attended McGill University and Princeton University as an undergraduate, and obtained my Ph.D. from Harvard University under the supervision of Phillip A. Griffiths. My thesis was published as a Memoir of the American Mathematical Society under the title Hodge Theory and the Local Torelli Problem.
Before coming to Tufts, I had taught at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and at Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore. I was a member of the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton for a year and a visitor at the Institut Henri Poincaré in Paris as well as at the Université Paris 7 Diderot for extended periods.
An algebraic geometer by training, I have done research at the interface of algebraic geometry, topology, and differential geometry, including Hodge theory, degeneracy loci, moduli of vector bundles, and equivariant cohomology. These days I work mainly in algebraic topology and in tensor analysis, more specifically on equivariant cohomology and in coordinate-free tensor analysis.
