I am an Assistant Professor at Notre Dame. I study problems in geometric analysis and geometric measure theory. Earlier, I was an NSF Fellow and CLE Moore instructor at MIT, under the sponsorshop of Tobias Colding; I was a PhD student at Stanford advised by Simon Brendle and coadvised by Brian White; I was an undergraduate at University of Edinburgh. My email is nedelen at nd dot edu. My office is 283 Hurley.
I am a coorganizer of our geometric analysis seminar.
This fall 2021 I am teaching Calc III and a topics class Introduction to geometric measure theory. Past teaching.
