During talks, guest lectures, or in the course of teaching, I often reference a number of articles that figure centrally in my own research. For ease of access, I have compiled here a list of the resources I tend to mention, as well as those works I simply love!
Please note that this page is in progress and is continually being updated. If you would like to suggest additional works, please contact me.
