This is a quasi-Fuchsian manifold - it’s a basic kind of 3 manifold
homeomorphic to the product of a surface and an interval together with a
(non unique) choice of hyperbolic metric.
Togther with Prof. S. Kojima of TITEC we are working on applying
converegence results for quasi-Fuchsian manifolds and Teichmueller theory
to get information about closed hyperbolic manifolds.

From March 2014 I’ve also been working with the MSTIC FabLab
making mathematical curiosities from wood. I’m mainly interested in constructing geometric objects in wood using kerf bending patterns. Wood prepared using a laser cutting machine can be bent
and joined to like a 3 dimensional jigsaw puzzle.

In November 2014 I was invited to take part in
a workshop for architectural students
Architect 2.0 Grenoble
to explain the techniques and possibilities.
