My work focuses on how algebraic K-theory interacts with periodicity in the homotopy groups of spheres. Specifically, I do computations of approximations to algebraic K-theory of structured ring spectra and analyze how chromatic complexity behaves in this context. I also work on developing tools for doing trace methods computations. More recently, I have been working on approximations to algebraic K-theory of ring spectra with anti-involution with the long term goal of seeing how chromatic homotopy theory interacts with algebraic K-theory of ring spectra with anti-involution. For more information about my research, see my Research Statement.

Commuting unbounded homotopy limits with Morava K-theory [pdf | arxiv]

We give conditions for Morava K-theory to commute with certain homotopy limits with an eye towards applications to topoligical periodic cyclic homology and algebraic K-theory.

Chromatic complexity of algebraic K-theory of y(n) [pdf | arxiv]

We compute continuous Morava K-theory of topological periodic cyclic homology and topological negative cyclic homology of the Thom spectra y(n). This gives evidence for a version of the red-shift conjecture at all chromatic heights modulo a conjecture to be proven in future join work with Andrew Salch.

Detecting the beta family in iterated algebraic K-theory of finite fields [pdf | arxiv]

I prove that the beta family is detected in iterated algebraic K-theory of finite fields and consequently iterated algebraic K-theory of the integers. This gives evidence for a higher chromatic height version of the Lichtenbaum conjecture,
which I call the Greek-letter-family red-shift conjecture, after the red-shift conjecture of Ausoni-Rognes.

A May-type spectral sequence for topological Hochschild homology [pdf | arxiv]

We construct a spectral sequence for higher topological Hochschild homology associated to a multiplicative filtration of a commutative ring spectrum. In particular, we show that the Whitehead tower of a commutative ring spectrum can be built as a multiplicative filtered commutative ring spectrum. We use this spectral sequence to give a bound on topological Hochshcild homology of a connective commutative ring spectrum.

The Segal Conjecture for Topological Hochschild Homology of the Ravenel spectra X(n) and T(n) [pdf | arxiv]

We solve the homotopy limit problem for topological Hochschild homology of Ravenel's spectra X(n) with respect to all cyclic groups of order a power of p. This implies that, after p-comletion, topological negative cyclic homology and topological periodic cyclic homology of X(n) are homotopy equivalent.

Maps of simplicial spectra whose realizations are cofibrations [pdf | arxiv]

This paper provides user friendly conditions for checking when a map of simplicial spectra induces a cofibration on geometric realizations. (A simpler proof of the main theorem was pointed out by a generous referee and therefore this paper remains a preprint even though the main theorem is correct.)

K(n)-local homotopy groups via Lie algebra cohomology [pdf]

We compute the homotopy groups of the K(1)-local mod p Moore spectrum at odd primes in order to illustrate a method that could be used to compute K(n) local homotopy of more general type n complexes. This paper is an exposition of work of Ravenel.

Galois cohomology and algebraic K-theory of finite fields [pdf]

We describe how to compute algebraic K-theory of finite fields using Galois cohomology and an Atiyah-Hirzebruch type spectral sequence for algebraic K-theory. This project is my master's thesis completed under the direction of Andrew Salch.

Auslander-Reiten quiver of the category of unstable modules over a sub-Hopf algebra of the Steenrod algebra [pdf]

We provide partial results about the Auslander-Reiten quiver associated to the category of unstable E(1)-modules where E(1) is the sub-Hopf algebra of the Steenrod algebra generated by the first two Milnor primitives.
