My research is in commutative algebra, with a focus on its homological aspects. I have a particular interest in studying properties of commutative rings using theories of cohomological support and structures on resolutions. I often work with triangulated categories as they are well-suited to study such data, and it allows me to draw on ideas from a variety of other areas such as homotopy theory and representation theory. I am interested in continuing this research program with an emphasis on understanding ring theoretic properties in terms of cohomological support and triangulated categories, as well as other homological invariants.
