I am a PhD student at LSU working under the supervision of Dr. Milen Yakimov. My research interests are at the intersection of algebraic categorification, noncommutative algebra, representation theory, and tensor-triangular geometry. Specifically, I am interested in:

- noncommutative analogues of Balmer's prime spectrum of a tensor-triangulated category;
- the role of the different categorical prime spectra in the context of algebraic categorification of noncommutative algebras, including how new categorifications can be produced using prime spectra;
- the role of the different categorical prime spectra in the context of derived categories of non-braided monoidal abelian categories, such as the category of bimodules for a noncommutative algebra.
