Spring 2017: Carolyn Abbott is again spending the semester as a visiting research scholar at CUNY Graduate Center working with Jason Behrstock.  They semester they completed the project they began the previous spring on universal acylindrical actions and have begun a new project on bounding the length of conjugators in hierarchically hyperbolic groups.
 
Fall 2016: Carolyn Abbott is spending the semester as a Research Fellow at MSRI in Berkeley, CA, as part of a semester-long program on geometric group theory.
 
Spring 2016:  Carolyn Abbott is spending the semester in New York working with Jason Behrstock at the CUNY graduate center on a project related to universal actions of acylindrically hyperbolic groups.
 
Summer 2016:  With the RTG funding, I have been able to spend the semester in New York.  I am a visiting research scholar at CUNY Graduate Center, visiting Jason Behrstock.  He and I have started working on a project that would not have possible otherwise.  In addition, since I have not been teaching, I have been able to attend the Young Geometric Group Theorists conference in Germany and the CIMPA school on hyperbolic groups and their representations in Uruguay.  While the funding for the conferences did not come from the RTG, they wouldn’t have been possible if I did not have the RA-ship.  In addition, I have had the time to complete projects with two collaborators, both of which should be appearing on the arXiv shortly.
 
Fall 2016: With the help of the RTG funding, I have been able to spend the fall semester at MSRI for their semester-long program on geometric group theory.   I have been able to complete a project with a collaborator, as well as begin multiple new projects with new people.
