Starting in the fall 2018, I will be an assistant professor of mathematics at the University of Pennsylvania. For the summer and fall semester I am visiting the Max Planck Institute for mathematics in Bonn.

Before I was a J.J. Sylvester Assistant Professor in the mathematics department at Johns Hopkins University.

I got my Ph.D. at the University of Chicago under the supervision of Peter May in 2014.

My research interests include algebraic K-theory, its applications to number theory and manifold theory, and equivariant stable homotopy theory.

At Johns Hopkins, I was the organizer for the JHU Topology Seminar.

Together with Nitu Kitchloo, Jack Morava, Emily Riehl and Steve Wilson, I organized the second Mid-Atlantic Topology Symposium which took place 12-13 March 2016 at Johns Hopkins University. We hope the Mid-Atlantic Topology conference will continue in future years, rotating between Hopkins and UVA.

Here is my CV.
