### Biography

I am a visiting assistant professor at the Department of Mathematics at the University of Rochester. Until summer 2014 I was a graduate student at the Department of Mathematics at Northwestern University. My advisor was Paul Goerss.

### Research Overview

My research is in algebraic topology and I do computations in chromatic homotopy theory at the prime 2. In my recent research I construct a tower of fibrations whose limit is the spectrum closely related to the K(2)-local sphere spectrum at the prime 2.
