My research is in algebraic topology and homotopy theory, with a focus on realization problems. My interests include homotopy operations (such as Π-algebras), algebraic models for homotopy n-types, cohomology operations, power operations, and examples from chromatic and motivic homotopy theory.

I am also interested in obstruction theory, Quillen cohomology, simplicial methods, and tools from homological and homotopical algebra.

Here is my research statement.
