## Research

My work is in topology, deformation theory, and quantum physics.

Most recent papers:

- Homotopy Probability Theory I and Homotopy Probability Theory II with Gabriel Drummond-Cole and Jae-Suk Park. 2013
- Homotopy DG algebras induce homotopy BV algebras with Thomas Tradler and Scott Wilson, J. Homotopy and Relat. Struc., 2011, Vol. 6, No. 1, pp. 177-182
- Quantizing Deformation Theory in Deformation Spaces, Vieweg Teubner Verlag, 2010
- Algebras over Cobar CoFrobenius with Gabriel Drummond-Cole and Thomas Tradler, J. Homotopy and Relat. Struc., 2010, Vol 5, No. 1, pp. 15-36

## Teaching
