About me

I’m a graduate student at the Harvard math department. You can email me at . This is my CV and these1 are my articles on the arXiv.

I’m interested in homotopy theory, higher category theory, derived algebraic geometry and combinatorics.

Expository papers (PDFs):


In the spring of 2012, I taught a tutorial about the fundamental groupoid called Groupoids in Topology.

For a combined precalculus/calculus course called Math Ma, I wrote a couple of interactive webpages using the brilliant JXSGraph library:

Topologists, category theorists and derived algebraic geometers3:

David Ayala John Baez Clark Barwick David Ben-Zvi
Dan Dugger John Francis Dennis Gaitsgory Moritz Groth
André Joyal William Lawvere Tom Leinster Jacob Lurie
Peter May Ieke Moerdijk David Nadler Charles Rezk
Emily Riehl Chris Schommer-Pries Urs Schreiber Michael Shulman
Carlos Simpson David Spivak Ross Street Bertrand Toën

You can find some of these people at the nLab or the n-Category Café.

  1. For some reason a direct search doesn’t turn up all of them.

  2. This an excellent program requirement: a chance to make a fool of yourself in writing by producing an exposition of a topic outside your field of expertise in a limited amount of time. I loved it! All math departments should have this.

  3. Separating them into the three topics named is left as an exercise for the reader.

  4. Possibly not the standard name for workers in this field.

  5. The people on this list do lots of other stuff too.
