The areas I am interested in are homotopy theory and algebraic topology, and their interactions with closely related areas in mathematicsalgebraic Ktheory, algebraic number theory, algebraic geometry, homological algebra, and geometric topology. 
Before going fulltime into mathematics in 2003, I studied rocket science at MIT and RPI:
