I am currently an Associate Professor in the University of Oregon Math Department.

Previously, I was an NSF Postdoctoral Fellow and Lecturer at MIT, under the supervision of Roman Bezrukavnikov.

I completed my PhD in 2011 at Columbia University, under the supervision of Mikhail Khovanov.
In fall of 2017 I am teaching Homological Algebra, MAT 607. The course website is here.

Course websites for my previous courses can be found here.
I have taken over the reins of WARTHOG, the Workshop on Algebra and Representation Theory Held on Oregonian Grounds, from Nick Proudfoot.
I am interested in categorical representation theory. For more on my research and a list of my publications, go here.
