I am currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Pennsylvania.

Before I was a J.J. Sylvester Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Johns Hopkins University, and in the fall of 2018 I was a guest at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Bonn.

I got my Ph.D. in Mathematics at the University of Chicago under the supervision of Peter May in 2014.

My research interests include algebraic K-theory, its applications to number theory and manifold theory, and equivariant stable homotopy theory.

Here is my CV.
