### My research:

Derived
Smooth Manifolds. The category of derived manifolds contains arbitrary
intersections of
manifolds, even if they are not transverse, while retaining enough
structure so that every compact derived manifold has a fundamental class
in cobordism. This work was
published in Duke Mathematical Journal, May 2010.

PhD dissertation. The above is a reworking of my
PhD dissertation (from UC Berkeley, 2007). It is more linearly ordered, detailed, and abstruse than the
Duke version.

Slides. Here is a
slide talk I gave on the subject in Vancouver, BC.
