Andrew Blumberg, Mike Hill, Kyle Ormsby, Constanze Roitzheim and I wrote an article for Notices of the AMS introducing homotopical combinatorics.
Nick Gurski, Niles Johnson and I wrote an article for Notices of the AMS outlining our research on the stable homotopy hypothesis.
I do research in algebraic topology. I am particularly interested in higher category theory and its connections with higher K-theory. In 2010, I got my PhD at MIT with Mark Behrens. From 2010 to 2013, I was a postdoc at the University of Chicago working with Peter May.
