About

I am an associate professor of mathematics at Denison University (a liberal arts college in Ohio, ranked in the top 40). I teach 4-5 courses per year, and have taught courses in math, computer science, and statistics. I got my PhD in 2014 from Wesleyan University (in Connecticut) and was an undergrad at Bowdoin College (in Maine).

Details about my research: In math, I'm mostly interested in questions involving (semi) model categories, Bousfield localization, and algebras over (colored) operads. I like to apply my work to unstable, stable, equivariant, and motivic homotopy theory, to homological algebra, and to representation theory. In computer science, I think about graph theory, randomized algorithms, streaming computation, genetic algorithms, data science, and data systems. In applied statistics, I've done research (often with students) related to the opioid epidemic, policing and protests, gun violence, and a host of other topics. I've also begun to dabble in economics, biostatistics, and pedagogical research, thanks to my co-authors. In my spare time, I travel as much as possible. As of 2023, I've visited 143 countries and published 33 papers and a book.
