I am a tenure-track research fellow at the IBS Center for Geometry and Physics in Pohang, South Korea.

I received my PhD in 2010 under the supervision of John Terilla at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York (alternate site) and spent three years as an NSF postdoc at Northwestern University.

My research interests include operadic and homotopy algebra, quantum field theory, and the moduli space of Riemann surfaces.
