Starting in the Fall 2018, I am a J.J. Sylvester Assistant Professor at Johns Hopkins University. Before that, I was a graduate student at the University of Texas at Austin where my advisor was Dan Freed. I am interested in various interactions between physics, geometry, and topology. My dissertation thesis is a computation in twisted equivariant K-theory, motivated by its relation to Chern-Simons topological quantum field theories. Before that, I did some work on the localization principal in supergeometry.
