## About Me

I am a 2^{nd} year PhD Student in the Department of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Chicago. I did my undergraduate work at Birmingham-Southern College in Birmingham, AL.

Here is a copy of my CV (updated March 2019).

In addition to math, I do a variety of art things, particularly within the realm(s) of alternative process photography and new media (mostly g͓̭̈́̕l̛̺͍͠ỉ̖͕͝t̪͒͊͜c͈̻̽͐ẖ̰̿̄ art). I also did some work in undergrad on the cultural history of death, culminating in an honors thesis on William Faulkner’s *As I Lay Dying*, particularly with regard to its significance in the history of death in the American South.

## Research

**Research Interests:**

I haven't really done much actual research, but I'm interested in a variety of topics related to algebraic topology and number theory, especially stable homotopy theory and chromatic homotopy theory. I did some work in undergrad in mathematical biology, algebraic number theory (leading to the publication listed below) and algebraic topology.
**Publications and Preprints:**

A. Pratt, M. Stadnik, and M. Wachter, *Units in Quadratic and Multi-Quadratic Fields*, Alabama Journal of Mathematics 41 (2017), no. 1. [Journal].
**Notes and talks:**

April 2019: "Cohomologie étale: les points de départ," UIC Graduate Algebraic Geometry Seminar.

March 2019: "Landweber Exactness and Morava *E*-Theory," UIC Graduate Homotopy Theory Seminar.

February 2019: "Stacks?" UIC Graduate Homotopy Theory Seminar.

November 2017: "Infinity Topoi: A Primer," UIC Graduate Infinity Categories Seminar.

## Teaching
