About me:

I received my Ph.D. from U.C. Berkeley in 2009 under the supervision of Nicolai Reshetikhin. I am currently in the final year of a three year NSF postdoc at Columbia University, where my sponsoring scientist is Dylan Thurston. My research concerns example driven questions in quantum algebra and quantum topology. In particular, I am interested in the classification, topology, and arithmetic of fusion categories and subfactors.

Fall 2011 I am teaching Calculus 1.
Spring 2011 I taught Calculus I.
Fall 2010 I taught group representation theory.

Expository papers and teaching notes:

In the fall of 2003 I wrote a final paper called "Automorphism Groups of Curves" for
Robin Hartshorne's class on algebraic curves. Here it is in pdf.

In the summer of 2002 I taught a tutorial at Harvard on L-functions and zeta functions.
Here are the notes from lectures (in pdf): 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6, 7, 8 and 9, 10
Here are the homeworks (in pdf): 1, 2
Here are the suggested paper topics (in pdf).

In the spring of 2002 I wrote my senior thesis at Harvard under the supervision of Benedict Gross. It was titled "Artin L-Functions: A Historical Approach." It received highest honors from the math department. Here it is in pdf.

In the fall of 2001 I wrote a paper on the distribution of primes in F_p[x] for a seminar taught by Tom Brennan. I received advice on both the content and presentation of this paper from both Tom Brennan and Keith Conrad. Here it is in pdf.
