Research Overview

Broadly, I am interested in the intersections between algebra, topology, category theory, and physics.  My research lies in algebraic topology and higher category theory, with a focus on the connections between Topological Quantum Field Theories and generalised infinity operads.

Currently, I am primarily working on quasi modular operads and the surface operad.
