I am an associate professor at Denison University, where I teach courses in mathematics, computer science, and statistics. I now do research in all three areas. In math, 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, randomized algorithms, streaming computation, and genetic algorithms. In applied statistics, I've done research (often with students) related to the opioid epidemic, policing and protests, gun violence, and a host of other topics. I've also begun to dabble in economics, biostatistics, and pedagogical research, thanks to my co-authors. In my spare time, I travel as much as possible. I've visited over 90 countries so far (last updated 2021).
