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 2019 I am teaching Calculus, MAT 241. For the entire 2019 year I will be teaching Graduate Algebra, MAT647-648-649. These course will be managed from canvas.

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.

From August 10-14, 2020 I will be organizing a conference at University of Oregon called QUACKS, or in long form: QUAntum groups, Categorification, Knot invariants, and Soergel bimodules.

I am interested in categorical representation theory. For more on my research and a list of my publications, go here.

In March of 2013, Geordie Williamson and I gave a masterclass on Soergel bimodules and the Kazhdan-Lusztig conjectures at the QGM in Aarhus, Denmark. Videos and lecture notes can be found here. Exercises and lecture notes can be found here.

In January of 2014, I gave a masterclass on Soergel bimodules and the Kazhdan-Lusztig conjectures at the IMSc in Chennai, India. Videos and lecture notes can be found on that website.

In August of 2014, I gave a workshop on Soergel bimodules and the Kazhdan-Lusztig conjectures at the University of Oregon in Eugene, Oregon. Lecture notes and exercises can be found on that website.

In Summer of 2017, Geordie Williamson, Shotaro Makisumi, and I gave a graduate summer school at the MSRI. The auxiliary website for the course is here.

In September of 2018 I gave a minicourse in Besse-en-Chandesse as part of this conference. You can find lecture notes and exercises here.
