About Me - I am a fifth year graduate student at Ohio State University (graduating in Sp 2021) studying homotopy theory under the supervision of John Harper. I am interested in functor calculus and structured ring spectra, more specifically, describing the structure inherent to the Goodwillie derivatives of functors between categories of algebras over operads in spectra. I completed my undergraduate degree in Mathematics at Ohio State University in 2015.

I am also the current organizer of the student homotopy seminar at OSU. The seminar website can be found here.

In my spare time I enjoy playing the guitar, listening to new and eclectic music, cooking and traveling.
