Welcome! I am a graduate student in pure mathematics at Stanford University, working in topology. My advisor is Søren Galatius and I expect to receive my PhD in 2019. My CV is available.

Email: jreinh [AT] stanford [DOT] edu.

Research Interests

I am interested in algebraic and geometric topology, and my work is aimed at applying homotopy theory to solve geometric questions, with a special focus on the topology of manifolds.

Some keywords: manifold bundles and their characteristic classes, cobordism categories, moduli spaces of manifolds, configuration spaces, surgery theory and the classification of high-dimensional manifolds.
