Research Statement
Teaching Statement and Evals available on request.

I'm teaching Calculus 1000A at UWO in the Fall semester. I'm also co-organizing and mentoring in the Directed Reading Program and supervising a reading course on Category Theory.

Research

I work in the area of algebraic topology and homotopy theory. In my research, I apply homotopy theoretical techniques to study problems from geometry, symplectic topology, knot theory, representation theory, and mathematical physics.

Too much sanity may be madness
and the maddest of all,
to see life as it is
and not as it should be.

When not doing math...

I have recently moved to London, ON and am looking for things to do around the town.
