On hierarchical hyperbolicity of cubical groups. With Tim Susse. Isr. J. Math. 236, 45-89, 2020. (journal link)
This paper characterises cocompact cubulations with factor systems. More recently, Sam Shepherd has produced the first examples without factor systems, using a phenomenon present in some CSCs.

(journal link)
The "cubical approximation theorem" proved in this paper was re-proved here by Brian Bowditch, who has also extended the result on quasiflats to the setting of coarse median spaces.

Cubulated groups: thickness, relative hyperbolicity, and simplicial boundaries. With Jason Behrstock. Groups, Geometry, and Dynamics. (10:2) 649-707, 2016.
Terminology clarification: the word "quasiconvex" is used in two ways in the paper, sometimes confusingly. In arguments not about group actions, it means "any two points in the subspace are joined by a quasigeodesic in the subspace". For a subgroup H of a group G acting geometrically on a cube complex X, "quasiconvex" is intended in the stronger, cubical sense: H-orbits are Hausdorff close to their convex hull in X. Nowadays, one would say "cubically convex-cocompact".

This is a slightly different proof of Theorem A. The main idea is the same, but the argument is modified in a way that avoids some technicalities. Not for publication, just a record for possible later use.

Some point-set topology comments, mainly explaining why the boundary of a proper HHS is metrisable. Not for publication since it's just giving details of ideas in the paper, but possibly helpful to someone reading Sections 2 and 3.

This preprint is under repair (inductive step as written doesn't work). Will update here and on ArXiV when repairs are complete.
