Type theoretic weak factorization systems
(20170601)This thesis presents a characterization of those categories with weak factorization systems that can interpret the theory of intensional dependent type theory with Σ, Π, and identity types. We use display map categories ... 
On the main conjectures of Iwasawa theory for certain elliptic curves with complex multiplication
(20170530)The conjecture of Birch and SwinnertonDyer is unquestionably one of the most important open problems in number theory today. Let $E$ be an elliptic curve defined over an imaginary quadratic field $K$ contained in $\mathbb{C}$, ... 
Exploring Random Geometry with the Gaussian Free Field
(20161001)This thesis studies the geometry of objects from 2dimensional statistical physics in the continuum. Chapter 1 is an introduction to SchrammLoewner evolutions (SLE). SLEs are the canonical family of nonselfintersecting, ... 
On a Heegaard Floer theory for tangles
(20170310)The purpose of this thesis is to define a “local” version of Ozsváth and Szabó’s Heegaard Floer homology HFL^ for links in the 3sphere, i.e. a Heegaard Floer homology HFT^ for tangles in the 3ball. The decategorification ...
