I’m a Ph.D. candidate in mathematics at Cornell University, advised by Inna Zakharevich.

I enjoy thinking about mathematics at the interface between algebra and topology. In particular, I’m interested in equivariant homotopy theory and algebraic structures that arise therein.

CV (Last updated: November 16, 2023)

I pronounce my last name as “VOH-guh-lee” in English, but it’s really Swiss German in origin.

Some things I’m involved in:


Research

[arxiv:2311.02459] Bredon homological stability for configuration spaces of \(G\)-manifolds, with Eva Belmont and J.D. Quigley.
