My research interests are mainly within the areas of algebraic topology and higher category theory. I employ the tools of abstract homotopy theory to study various kinds of higher structures, including operads and their generalizations.

Just prior to joining the faculty at UL Lafayette, I was a research fellow at the Centre of Australian Category Theory in Sydney.
