It's been a good almost 13 year run. But for the next while, I intend to take a break from the stackexchange network. In part, this is due to the Monica debacle and the more recent ChaptGPT strike. But independent of those issues, I think it's just time to move on. At least for now ;-)

Old profile:

I'm a professor of mathematics at the University of Tennessee at Martin

My research interests include compact Riemannian manifolds with positive/non-negative sectional curvature, and, in particular, those with a "large" isometry group. I love working with compact Lie groups, especially homogeneous spaces and biquotients. Recently, my attention has turned to rational homotopy theory and double disk bundles.

At some point, I intend to learn some set theory.
