About me

I am a fourth 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 a motivic analogue of unoriented cobordism MO. I call this MGLO.

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.

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.
