I am currently a researcher at the Max-Planck-Institute for Mathematics. Prior to that I was an NSF Postdoc and CLE Moore Instructor at MIT, and NSF Postdoc at Harvard. I graduated from Berkeley, and am an occasional Blogger at The Secret Blogging Seminar. My research focuses on the interactions of topology, higher categories, and quantum field theory. You can see more on my webpage.
