I am a graduate student at Wesleyan University, currently in my final year. I study algebraic topology with Mark Hovey, specifically questions involving localization and model categories. My work has applications to the theory of algebras over operads, equivariant homotopy theory, and motivic homotopy theory. I am also interested in creating a stronger bridge between infinity categories and model categories, and in particular in determining whether methods from the former can be applied to the latter.

I also hold a masters degree in computer science from Wesleyan, which I received under Danny Krizanc. My thesis problem applied methods of discrete mathematics and probability theory to settle a conjecture involving autonomous agents moving on a graph. I've put aside computer science for the time being but may return to it to resolve out-standing questions or to advise a project.

comment In what generality does Eilenberg-Watts hold?
Yes, that's exactly right. The paper which puts a model structure on the module category is Algebras and Modules in Monoidal Model Categories, by Schwede-Shipley. Also, Mark Hovey's preprint Monoidal Model Categories if you want to see what happens when the Schwede-Shipley hypotheses are weakened.
