I am a PhD candidate in math arrived in 2017 at Stony Brook University. I
am interested in topology, especially of manifolds and algebraic
varieties. My advisor is Dennis
Sullivan.

## Research

*Almost complex manifolds
with total Betti number three* (arXiv preprint).
(with A.
Milivojević) *Infinite
symmetric products of rational algebras and spaces* (to appear
in *Comptes Rendus Mathématique*)

## Notes

*Topological
resolution of singularities* for talks I gave at City
University of New York Graduate Center Topology, Geometry and Physics
seminar in November 2019, at University of Science and Technology of China
in December 2019, and at University of Pennsylvenia defomation theory
seminar in Feburary 2020.
*Elliptic
cohomology and elliptic genera* for a series of talks I gave at
student topology seminar in spring 2020, Stony Brook University.
*Steenrod
and Adams operations from easy algebra* This is a detailed note
attempting to interprete Jack Morava's point that "the dual Steenrod
algebra is the automorphism group of the additive group". In particular,
we solve the equations *f(x+y)=f(x)+f(y)* and *f(x+y+xy)=f(x)+f(y)+f(x)f(y)*
by formal power series with coefficients in the field of *p*
elements, and then relate the space of solutions to Steenrod and Adams
operations respectively.
