About me (CV)

**I am a fifth year graduate student at University of Michigan. My advisor is Igor Kriz.**

Research Interests

**I am an algebraic topologist by trade. More specifically, my interests lie in the area of motivic homotopy theory.**

**
**

**My research involves constructing cobordism theories.
Most recently I have constructed motivic analogues of unoriented cobordism MO and oriented cobordism MSO. I call these MGLO and MSLO respectively.
**

**Of late I have become interested in equivariant homotopy theory, and more specifically with computing the coefficients of MGLR, which is a motivic analogue of Landweber's MR.**

Past Talks and Conferences

**I gave a talk at UCLA Algebraic Topology Seminar on my research in stable motivic homotopy theory on Novemeber 16, 2016.****I gave a talk at UIUC Topology Seminar on my research in stable motivic homotopy theory on September 27, 2016.****I gave a talk at an AIM workshop on Equivariant derived algebraic geometry on my research in equivariant motivic stable homotopy theory on June 17, 2016.****I gave a talk at University of Chicago Topology Seminar on my research in stable motivic homotopy theory May 24, 2016.**-

Music

**Here are some audio files of me playing flute. These recordings are from my days as a freshman at The Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University
where I majored in flute performance before switching to mathematics. My teacher was Laurie Sokoloff, piccoloist of
the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. **
