Hello, and welcome to my website! I am currently a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Brandon University in Brandon, Manitoba, Canada working with Rory Lucyshyn-Wright. I obtained my PhD in mathematics at the University of Ottawa working with Pieter Hofstra and Philip Scott, and my MSc in Logic and Computation at Carnegie Mellon University working with Steve Awodey. My research interests lie primarily in category theory, algebra, and logic.

Here is the video for a research talk that I gave at the New York City Category Theory Seminar on February 3, 2021.

 

Here is the video for a research talk that I gave at the Panglobal Logic and Algebra Seminar on January 26, 2021, and here are the slides.  

Here are the slides for a research talk that I gave at the Atlantic Category Theory Seminar on November 3, 2020.
