about me
I'm a postdoctoral research associate in the Mathematics Institute of the University of Göttingen, and a member of the Courant Research Centre on Higher Order Structures in Mathematics (CRCG). I received my Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of California, Riverside. My thesis was supervised by John Baez.
Here is my CV.
research interests
I am primarily interested in structures called homotopy algebras, which blend together the computational power of algebra with the topologist's flexible notion of equivalence. I use these as tools to study problems
in topology, geometry, and physics.
