I am an assistant professor at Denison University. I completed my PhD at Wesleyan University in 2014 under the supervision of Mark Hovey, and I completed a masters degree in computer science under the supervision of Danny Krizanc. I'm mostly interested in questions involving (semi) model categories, Bousfield localization, and algebras over (colored) operads. I like to apply my work to stable, equivariant, and motivic homotopy theory. On the computer science side I like thinking about graph theory and probability, with an eye towards algorithms.

comment When is the projective model structure cartesian? When is the internal hom invariant?
This is a note to my future self. Yalin's result regarding the pushout product axiom for the pointwise monoidal product in the projective model structure is Lemma 3.8 on page 26 of his 2012 paper "Classifying Spaces and module spaces of algebras over a prop"

comment How to prove a Proposition of Rouquier?
If an edit such as Jeremy Rickard suggests is made I will vote to reopen. I think questions like this should be allowed in general, though obviously one has to give some background and point to where the difficulty lies

comment Are there two non-homotopy equivalent spaces with equal homotopy groups?
In the early days of math overflow this question would have been welcomed. If this question were asked today it would almost certainly be sent to stack exchange. I propose we close it so that standards are kept consistent and so that no one else comes along to bump it to the front page. I don't think it'll garner any new answers and even if it did this is not the right place to record such examples.

Texified because it was on the front page anyway.

comment symmetric monoidal dagger endofunctor categories
Hi Martin. Thanks. I was unaware of that, since I always work in a closed monoidal setting. But it's good to know there is in fact an extra hypothesis needed.

Are you assuming at least that $F$ has a right adjoint $G$?
