### Notes

Below are some notes I've written in connection with talks given in the Farb and Friends Student Seminar (FFSS) and other seminars and workshops. These notes are also available on my Activities page.The FFSS notes are intended to be accessible to graduate students in geometric group theory, low-dimensional topology, and related fields.
