I am a fifth year mathematics Ph.D. candidate at the University of Texas at Austin.  Previously I was an undergraduate at Rutgers University, where I graduated in 2015 with highest honors in mathematics and a minor in cognitive science. 

My research interests are in homotopy theory, primarily in axiomatic stable homotopy theory. Click here for a non-technical overview of what that means.

In particular, I am interested in understanding how various structures and phenomena in stable homotopy theory can be brought into contexts beyond classical algebraic topology. For example, I have recently been thinking a lot about the modular representation theory of finite groups.

My CV was last updated Aug 2018.

Summer 2019

Over the summer, I am again organizing a series of Summer Mini-Courses, focusing on tools, methods, and ideas that aren't usually covered in prelim classes, but are useful in topics classes/research.

Fall 2018

I was the TA for UGS 303, a Signature Course titled From Numbers to Chaos, with Dr. Daniels. I lead two discussion sections Mondays 10-11am and 11am-12pm. My office hours are by appointment - send me an email if you'd like to talk!

Arun and I organized the homotopy theory learning seminar on families of elements in the stable homotopy groups of the spheres.
