about me

I am a graduate student in the math department at Brown University. My advisor is Melody Chan.

Before coming to Brown, I was an undergraduate at Pomona College, where my senior thesis work was advised by Dagan Karp.

Here's my academic cv.

Currently I'm one of the organizers for the Horizons seminar, and a member of the math department's diversity and inclusion committee.

I am supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.

research

Recently I've been working in combinatorial algebraic geometry, but I'm also interested in algebraic topology and number theory. I'm on Google scholar.
