Papers and Notes

As a researcher, my work falls into a few different areas:

  • My algebraic topology work focuses on (topological) (co)Hochschild homology computations and connections to algebraic K-theory.

  • My math education work focuses on connecting student learning to other disciplines, supporting underrepresented groups in STEM, and student understanding of proof.
