My field of interest and research is homotopy theory, generally from an algebraic viewpoint. I tend to specialize in the use and development of complex (co)bordism, Brown-Peterson (co)homology and Morava K-theory. In addition, I am a Professor in the School of Education as a result of my interest in K-12 mathematics education.
I am on leave July 1, 2021 to December 31, 2021. Email is the best way to contact me.

60th birthday conference stuff. Slides for my talk and photos of the conference and banquet. Keep in mind that these were mostly taken by my son Saul, which explains why there are 300+ of them. The whole collection runs about 1.3GB.
Better, we now have Nori Minami's videos of Mike Hopkins giving the lecture on Jack Morava's work at his 60th birthday conference.
My infamous Geometry Exam is available for all who are willing to take the chance. There are 3 levels of solutions. First, we have them in numerical order. Next, we have the the correct answers and, finally, the the solutions.
My lecture on Bendersky's work at his 70th birthday conference at Princeton University, April, 2015.
My lecture at the Homotopy Theory in the Ecliptic conference, August, 2017. Some History, Some Ravenel, Some Current. (Ravenel's 70th birthday conference.)
