I am a Ph.D. candidate studying algebraic topology with Igor Kriz and symbolic dynamics with Jeffrey Lagarias at the University of Michigan. My doctoral thesis concerns the algebraic structure of the G-equivariant complex cobordism spectrum, including its equivariant formal group law. I plan to apply the isotropy separation spectral sequence of my thesis to the study of other equivariant spectra as well, such as equivariant Eilenberg-MacLane spectra, and I also hope to gain insight into the structure of equivariant formal group laws. I am also studying the symbolic dynamics of p-adic Cantor sets.
I am supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. During the 2012-2013 school year I taught at Ridgeview Classical Schools and Front Range Community College . I have a B.Sc. with Honors in Mathematics with Specialization in Economics and a B.A. in Economics from the University of Chicago, 2010; and an M.Sc. in Mathematics from the University of Michigan, 2011. I will defend my Ph.D. thesis in late July. Here is my CV. Beginning in August I will be an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Hillsdale College in Hillsdale, Michigan.
