Obstructions to coarse cubulation

A proper cocompact action of a group on a CAT(0) cube complex gives a lot of information about the group, so it is of interest to know when such an action exists. In this talk I'll describe a geometric criterion that can prevent a group from being even quasiisometric to a CAT(0) cube complex.

Based on ongoing joint work with Zach Munro.
