Current Research:

My research is split between homotopy theory and applied statistics, computer science, and a smattering of other fields. My work in homotopy theory focuses on questions involving localization and model categories. My work has applications to the theory of algebras over colored operads, equivariant homotopy theory, homological algebra, representation theory, motivic homotopy theory, and higher category theory. Additionally, I have supervised undergraduate research in computer science, discrete applied mathematics, and applied statistics. My work outside homotopy theory has led to papers in economics, computer science, humanistic mathematics, statistics-education, and data science. Recently, I have begun to focus my statistics research on the opioid epidemic in Ohio, and on policing and protests. I am also working on a data science book.
