I am a sixth-year graduate student in the Mathematics Department at Northwestern University. My advisor is Paul Goerss. My main research interests are in stable homotopy theory.

*Picard groups and duality for Real Morava E-theories*(with Drew Heard, XiaoLin Danny Shi).

We show, at the prime $2$, that the Picard group of invertible modules over $E^{hC_2}_n$ is cyclic. Here, $E_n$ is the height $n$ Lubin-Tate spectrum and its $C_2$-action is induced from the formal inverse of its associated formal group law. We further show that $E^{hC_2}_n$ is Gross-Hopkins self-dual and determine the shift to be $n+4$. Our results generalize the well-known results when $n=1$.

*Hurewicz Images of Real Bordism Theory and Real Johnson-Wilson Theories*(with XiaoLin Danny Shi, Guozhen Wang, and Zhouli Xu). To appear in**Advances in Mathematics**.

We show that the Hopf elements, the Kervaire classes, and the $\bar{\kappa}$-family in the stable homotopy groups of spheres are detected by the Hurewicz map from the sphere spectrum to the $C_2$-fixed points of the Real Brown-Peterson spectrum. A subset of these families is detected by the $C_2$-fixed points of Real Johnson-Wilson theory $E\mathbb{R}(n)$, depending on $n$.
