My research is in algebraic topology with an emphasis on mathematical physics. If you are interested in a more detailed discussion of my research projects, please feel free to follow the link.
In my free time I used to tutor for the Chicago HOPES homeless education program, but this is my thesis year. I still try to play ultimate, and I still find time to coach Northwestern University's undergraduate Mock Trial team. I am also one of two Outreach Coordinators for the Northwestern Presidential Fellows.
Getting back to math, I am also one of organizers of the Talbot Workshop. This year the topic is chromatic homotopy theory, with mentors Mark Behrens and Tyler Lawson. Last year the topic was the Calculus of Functors, with mentors Gregory Arone and Michael Ching. I've organized this workshop with Sheel Ganatra (MIT/Stanford), Saul Glasman (MIT), Owen Gwilliam (Northwestern/Berkeley), and Gijs Heuts (Harvard). If you have any suggestions on a topic for future workshops, you should let me know via e-mail.
Currently I'm also organizing the 2013 Pre-Talbot Seminar on chromatic homotopy theory. Along with Sam Gunningham and Owen Gwilliam, I also helped organize the 2011 pre-Talbot seminar at Northwestern University.
