## About

I am a 6th year graduate student at the University of Chicago working with Shmuel Weinberger. Previously, I was an undergraduate at Cornell working with Jason Manning.

My CV

## Research Interests

- Algebraic K-theory (specifically the K-theory of group rings), surgery theory and applications of the Farrell-Jones conjecture
- Equivariant smoothing theory
- Geometric group theory (specifically how it interacts with group cohomology)

## Preprints and Publications

- Chern class obstructions to smooth equivariant rigidity.
- Torus bundles over lens spaces.
*in revision* - A spectral sequence for Dehn fillings.
*Algebraic & Geometric Topology***21**(2021), no. 5, 2257-2272. - Cohomology and the Bowditch boundary. (with Jason Manning)
