David White
I am an assistant professor at Denison University. I completed my PhD at Wesleyan University in 2014 under the supervision of Mark Hovey, and I completed a masters degree in computer science under the supervision of Danny Krizanc. I'm mostly interested in questions involving (semi) model categories, Bousfield localization, and algebras over (colored) operads. I like to apply my work to unstable, stable, equivariant, and motivic homotopy theory, to homological algebra, and to representation theory. On the computer science side I like thinking about graph theory, probability, and social networks, with an eye towards algorithms. I've also begun to dabble in game theory, economics, and statistics, thanks to my teaching.
