I am a postdoc in the group of Konrad Waldorf.  Before that, I was a postdoc at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Bonn, where my mentor was Peter Teichner.  I got my Ph.D. in 2016 at the University of Notre Dame under the supervision of Stephan Stolz.

My research is in topological quantum field theory and its relation to algebraic topology.  I am particularly interested in supersymmetric Euclidean field theories and their application to orbifold cohomology, as well as formulations of geometric, fully extended cobordism categories.  More broadly, I am interested in homotopical and higher categorical structures in differential geometry.
