Research Interests

My research program is (broadly) to study the geometry and topology of manifolds through techniques of quantum field theory (QFT) in a mathematically rigorous setting.  In addition, I study some fundamental connections between QFT, derived geometry, and higher Lie theory. 


Here are some of my students and their work:
