I am a J.J. Sylvester Assistant Professor in the mathematics department at Johns Hopkins University.
I am interested in algebraic K-theory and its applications to number theory, and in equivariant stable homotopy theory.
I am the organizer of the Johns Hopkins Topology Seminar.
Together with Nitu Kitchloo, Jack Morava, Emily Riehl and Steve Wilson, I am organizing the second Mid-Atlantic Topology Symposium which will take place 12-13 March 2016 at Johns Hopkins University. Please go to the conference webpage to register.
