I am a postdoc at the University of Copenhagen,
working in the Centre for Symmetry and Deformation.
I received my B.A. from the University of Chicago in June 2005 and my Ph.D. in June, 2010 from MIT
under the guidance of Professor
I work in the intersection of algebraic topology and finite group theory, studying fusion systems and their classifying spaces. My graduate thesis, "Fusion Action systems," describes group actions from a fusion- and p-local finite group-theoretic perspective; I hope to continue in this vein by exploring the representation theory of fusion system and their connections with modular representation theory.
During Block 1 of Autumn, 2010 I was an instructor for Algebra 3. I gave a two week introduction to basic module theory, using these notes.
I am coorganizing, with Ellen Henke, a reading course on fusion and block theory. More information can be found here.
Doctoral Thesis: Fusion action systems.
