Personal information

I'm a visiting assistant professor at Northwestern University.

I received my Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota in 2013. My advisor was Tyler Lawson.

My research interests are in algebraic topology and related fields, particularly in its connections to algebraic geometry and number theory via objects such as formal groups, elliptic curves, and modular forms.

Since 2012, I've been on (or very close to) the job market. Below are my current application materials.
