About Me:

I am currently a Whyburn Instructor at University of Virginia (2017-2020). Previously, I was an Visiting Assistant Professor at University of Notre Dame (2015-2017). I completed my PhD in August 2015 from Indiana University under the supervision of Michael Mandell. My area of interest is algebraic topology,specifically computational aspects of Stable Homotopy Theory. To find more about me, look into my C.V. To find more about my research please see my research statement.
