Publication list.    Difficult to find.    Algebraic topology conferences.    Operator algebra conferences.

Teaching and seminars.   
From 2004 to 2007, I organized the first four Talbot workshops, with C. Douglas, J. Francis, and M. Hill.
Here's a pdf of a non-final version of my book on TMF, jointly edited with Chris Douglas, John Francis and Michael Hill.
In August 2010, I ran a workshop on Operator algebras and conformal field theory (i.e. conformal nets).
blue = on the ArXiv. pink = not on the ArXiv.
  • LG and Diff(S1) as colimits.
  • Bicommutant categories from conformal nets + a video about bicommutant categories.
  • On the relationship between conformal nets and factorization algebras.
  • A new type of 2-equivariance for TMF, where the group of equivariance gets replaced by a fusion category.
  • Planar algebras in braided tensor categories, with Dave Penneys and James Tener.
  • The 576 periodicity of Majorana fermions: slides.
  • The classification of chiral WZW models by H4(BG,ℤ).
  • Some examples of Stolz-Teichner cocycles.
  • A note about the definition of modular functor used by Andersen and Ueno.

    Here's a list of typos and comments for A. Wassermann's article Operator algebras and conformal field theory.

    Many years ago, I was a post-doc at Münster, in the topology group of Wolfgang Lück.

  • An action of the cactus group.
  • On the homotopy theory of orbispaces, with David Gepner.
  • CFT's associated to non-effective orbifolds, with Simeon Hellerman , Tony Pantev, Eric Sharpe, and Matthew Ando.
  • The periodicity of the bounded octahedron recurrence.
  • How to integrate L-infinity algebras. This 3 page abstract focuses more on the String group.
  • Gerbes on C/Z3, with Giovanni Felder, Carlo Rossi, and Chenchang Zhu.
  • Some notes on CW-orbispaces, and some on orbivariant K-theory.
    Here's a one page handout on stacks.

    Before, I was a grad student of Mike Hopkins at MIT.

  • My thesis (2005) is on orbispaces.
  • With Pavel Etingof, Eric Rains, and Joel Kamnitzer on the cohomology of the real locus of \bar Mo,n.
  • With Laurent Bartholdi and Volodia Nekrashevych on groups and automata .
  • With Joel Kamnitzer on a commutor for crystals, and on gl(n)-crystals.
  • With Tara Holm and Megumi Harada on T-equivariant generalised cohomology of G/P.
  • A picture of the subalgebra A(2) of the Steenrod algebra.

    I was also a grad student of Allen Knutson at Berkeley.

  • On presentations of non-effective orbifolds, joint work with David Metzler.
  • On a definition of orbifolds that uses the Borel construction.
  • On a convexity property of amoebas of algebraic varieties.
  • Here's my qual syllabus.

    Even before, I was an undergraduate in Geneva.

  • My undergraduate thesis with Vaughan Jones on the Ising model.
  • On a q-analogue of the notion of arithmetic polynomial.
