I completed my PhD at the University of Pennsylvania in May 2014 under the direction of Robert Ghrist, although I spent half of my time as a visiting associate to Bob MacPherson at the Institute for Advanced Study. There I learned stratification theory from Mark Goresky.
My research is primarily in the development of theoretical foundations for Topological Data Analysis via sheaf theory and category theory.
