and Geometry Seminar | IU/PU/IUPUI
I am an Assistant
Professor at IUPUI in Indianapolis. I completed my
Ph.D. at Stanford University in 2007, and my
advisor was Gunnar
Carlsson. I spent two years as a
Postdoctoral Fellow at Vanderbilt University, and
four years as an Assistant Professor at New Mexico
State University, in Las Cruces, New Mexico.

Topology and Algebraic K-theory.
I use techniques from K-theory, homotopy theory,
and geometry to study representation spaces of
infinite discrete groups. I am especially
interested in analogues of the Atiyah-Segal
theorem, relating these spaces to complex
K-theory. I also study applications of
large-scale geometry to assembly maps in
