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.

Previously, I've taught Algebraic Topology (Penn), Multivariable Calculus (Penn and Chicago), Single-Variable Calculus (Chicago), and a survey course for engineers (OSU Math 2177), sampling a bit of Multivariable Calculus, Differential Equations, Linear Algebra and along the way, some Fourier Series. This coming spring semester, I'm teaching an intro course on Sheaf Theory.
