About me

I’m an associate professor at the Department of Mathematics of TCU. I joined TCU in 2015, after spending some time as a postdoc at Penn State (as S. Chowla Research Assistant Professor). I received my Ph.D. from Purdue University.

My research interests interests include operator algebras and their interaction with group theory and algebraic topology. I have worked on the structure and classification theory of nuclear C$^*$-algebras, quasidiagonality of C$^*$-algebras, index theory, and K-theory.
