About Me

I'm currently a Benjamin Peirce Fellow at Harvard. I completed my Ph.D. at Northwestern University, where my advisor was Kevin Costello.

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.

Other interests

I am currently one of the coaches for Newton North High School's Mock Trial team. During my Spring 2014 semester at MSRI, I volunteered for the Reading Partners program at a school in Oakland. Back in Chicago, I used to volunteer for the Chicago HOPES homeless education program and coach Northwestern University's undergraduate Mock Trial team. I was also one of two Outreach Coordinators for the Northwestern Presidential Fellows. Feel free to ask me about any of these programs if you have any questions.

I also co-organized the Talbot Workshop from Fall 2009 to Spring 2013. Along the way, I helped organized the 2013 Pre-Talbot Seminar on chromatic homotopy theory and the 2011 Pre-Talbot seminar on non-Abelian Hodge Theory with Sam Gunningham and Owen Gwilliam.
