PhD Candidate

Research Interests

My research broadly falls within the fields of algebraic topology, algebraic geometry, and homotopy theory. In particular, I am interested in understanding chromatic homotopy theory using tools from spectral arithmetic geometry, such as elliptic cohomology.

Research Description

I am currently working on describing ramified level structures on oriented elliptic curves, with the long-term goal of constructing an arithmetically global version of modular-equivariant topological modular forms and understanding the appearance of Langlands-type phenomena in chromatic homotopy theory.
