I am a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Mathematics Department at Stanford University. Before that I was a Visiting Assistant Professor at the CUNY Graduate Center. I am interested in applications of algebraic topology to various moduli spaces and configuration spaces appearing in symplectic geometry, algebraic geometry and gauge theory. I am especially interested in homological stability, representation stability, factorization homology and the topology of configuration spaces.

I received my PhD from Stanford University in 2012 under the supervision of Ralph Cohen.
