I'm an assistant prof at Ohio State. Previously, I postdocked at the University of Pennsylvania, the Naval Research Lab, and jointly, the French Atomic Energy Commission (CEA Saclay) and École Polytechnique. I finished my Ph.D. in algebraic topology under the supervision of Peter May at the University of Chicago.

Algebraic topology provides methods for teasing out robust, global structure from local information. I am particularly interested in directed algebraic topology, an algebraic topology for local information that has a directional nature (like vector fields or semigroups), and its uses in such traditional applied subjects as optimization.

Elsewhere, I've taught Algebraic Topology (Penn), Multivariable Calculus (Penn and Chicago), and Single-Variable Calculus (Chicago). Here, I've taught Topics for Engineers (OSU Math 2177), Sheaf Theory (Topics Course OSU Math 8800) and the second course (OSU Math 4581) in an Algebra sequence. This semester, I'm teaching Linear Algebra (OSU Math 2568).
