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.
