I am an Associate Professor at the Mathematical Sciences Institute of the Australian National University.
My research interests include Khovanov homology, derived topological quantum field theories (TQFTs), and small examples of subfactors and tensor categories. More details can be found on my research page, or my lists of publications and talks.
I completed my Ph.D. in March 2007 at the University of California, Berkeley, studying with Vaughan Jones. My thesis received the Herbert Alexander Prize for Outstanding Dissertation in Pure Mathematics. Before Berkeley, I graduated from the University of New South Wales, Australia, with first class honours and the University Medal in pure mathematics.
