REU 2018

This summer I’m joining Alex Iosevich and Jonathan Pakianathan in running an REU in combinatorial geometry. More information here

Courses I’m teaching next semester (Fall 2018)
Topology seminar

I co-organize the topology seminar. Talks are in Hylan 1106A, 3:40-4:40 on Wednesdays. There is also a pretalk, also in Hylan 1106A, 2-3. Here is our schedule–you may have to scroll down a bit.


I study algebraic topology. I am particularly interested in computations related to equivariant and chromatic homotopy theory, as well as applications to geometric problems (such as the immersion problem for projective spaces and computing cobordism rings). I’ve also recently developed an interest in link invariants related to various link homology theories.
