I am the Ralph E. and Norma L. Edwards Research Professor in the mathematics department at the University of Kentucky.

From 2016-2017 I was a postdoc at the University of Regensburg. From 2014-2016 I was a postdoc at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics. From 2011-2014 I was a CLE Moore Instructor at MIT. My Ph.D. advisor was Charles Rezk at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

I work on interactions between algebraic topology, algebraic geometry, representation theory, and arithmetic geometry. Specifically, I am interested in chromatic homotopy theory and the Morava E-theories.

This semester I am primarily working with Tobias Barthel, Dan Berwick-Evans, Bert Guillou, David Mehrle, Sune Precht Reeh, Tomer Schlank, and Jared Weinstein on a variety of projects. My current PhD students are Nate Cornelius, Millie Deaton, Lewis Dominguez.

I am a 2021 Sloan Research Fellow. My work is partially supported by the National Science Foundation grant DMS-2304781 and was previously supported by DMS-1906236. I am also supported by a Simons travel support for mathematicians grant. My collaboration with Tomer Schlank is partially supported by the U.S. Israel Binational Science Foundation grant 2018389. I may be contacted at nat.j.stapleton at gmail.com. My office is POT 765.

Here is my CV.

## Programming

I have contributed code to Macaulay 2. In particular, I wrote the package RationalPoints.m2 and coauthored the packages GenericInitialIdeal.m2, NoetherNormalization.m2, and Regularity.m2. Currently, I am working with an undergraduate lab group at Kentucky to add code to Sage to work with formal group laws. Here is a calculation of the universal formal group law.

## Art

In the spring of 2012 I took a print-making class at MIT. Some of my art is below:
