Samuel Taylor


My name is Sam Taylor and I am an Associate Professor in the Mathematics Department at Temple University. Before coming to Temple, I was an NSF postdoctoral fellow and Gibbs Assistant Professor at Yale University. I received my PhD in mathematics from the University of Texas at Austin in 2014, where I was advised by Alan Reid.

My research interests include geometric topology, geometric group theory, and dynamics; especially hyperbolic 3-manifolds, pseudo-Anosov flows, mapping class groups, Out(Fn), hyperbolic groups, random walks, and various counting problems in groups. Below, you can find a list of my papers with links to the arXiv.
