I am an Associate Professor in the UNC Department of Mathematics, and am broadly interested in low-dimensional topology, representation theory, homological algebra, category theory, and their interactions. More specifically, I work on link homology, (categorified) quantum groups, quantum invariants of links and 3-manifolds, skein modules, and related structures.
My office is Phillips 302, and my email is my first and last names @unc.edu. My CV can be found here.
My work is currently supported by NSF CAREER Grant DMS-2144463 and by Simons Foundation Collaboration Grant 523992.
I affirm a woman’s right to choose (i.e. to make decisions about their health and body). In light of recent actions taken by radicals on the US Supreme Court, I will decline any invitation to travel to speak in a state where abortion is illegal or unduly restricted.
