### About Me

I am a fifth year graduate student at Brown University working under the supervision of George Daskalopoulos. I plan on graduating in May 2018.

### Research

I am mostly interested in harmonic maps, especially with singular targets. I am particularly interested in questions of rigidity for harmonic maps to certain classes of spaces of curvature bounded above. I am also working on projects related to free boundary minimal surfaces.
