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.

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:**

- I organize the Cornell Directed Reading Program along with Alekos Robotis.
- I organize HoMoToPIESS along with Kimball Strong.

## Research

**The Galois-equivariant \(K\)-theory of finite fields** [arxiv:2406.19481]

with David Chan.

**Bredon homological stability for configuration spaces of \(G\)-manifolds** [arxiv:2311.02459]

with Eva Belmont and J.D. Quigley.

## Events

- December 2024: Hot Topics: Life after the Telescope Conjecture, Berkeley, CA
- May 2025: Cornell Topology Festival, Ithaca, NY

## Expository & Other Writing

**The Homotopy Theory of Orthogonal Spectra** (in preparation)

A writeup I prepared for my Admission to Candidacy Exam (A Exam) in November 2022.

**English Translation of tom Dieck’s Faserbündel mit Gruppenoperation**

Translation to fulfil the language requirement of the Cornell mathematics graduate program.

**5/8 and Isoclinism** (in preparation)

Notes on the commuting probability of a finite group and the connection to isoclinism. Prepared for a talk given at the Olivetti Club in September 2021.

**A puzzle: what comes next in the sequence?**
