Curriculum Vitae (last updated: 09/2020)

I am a Devon Endowed Assistant Professor of Mathematics here at the University of Louisiana at
Lafayette. Before coming to Louisiana, I had postdoctoral
appointments at the University
of Aberdeen, the University of
Montana, and Rutgers
University.
My research is on the structure of finite groups, especially
around a prime p. I tend to think most about fusion systems
and their associated homotopy theory and homological algebra,
geometries and subgroup complexes of finite groups, and modular
representation theory.
