Title: 3-Manifolds everywhere
Abstract: 3-Manifolds (and 3-manifold groups) are (almost) everywhere, including where you might not expect them. I will explain how to construct them (with some help from ergodic theory) and to recognize them. Some of this is joint work with Henry Wilton, building on previous joint work with Alden Walker.
