I am a Professor at the University of California, Los Angeles. I am a member of the topology group, and my research focus in algebraic topology. Our algebraic topology group here at UCLA currently has 3 postdocs:

I am one of the organizers of the topology seminar.

Prior to my appointment at UCLA, I was an Associate Professor at the University of Virginia, a visitor for a year at Harvard, a Whyburn Instructor at UVA, and a graduate student at MIT.

I am a co-founder for Spectra: the association for LGBT mathematicians. We have already held several events at previous Joint Mathematics Meetings, and we indend to have another panel at the next meeting.

Much of my research is generously supported by grants. I current hold grants from the NSF and the Sloan foundation. Here are links to my grant applications for people interested in what sorts of problems I think about and for people who need models for their own applications.

I am an editor for several general interest journals, and I am excited to see more algebraic topology and homotopy theory represented therein.
