My research interests are in geometry, topology, and their applications. In particular, I am interested in applied algebraic topology, spaces of metric structures, and connections between computational geometry and topological invariants.
Applied Topology and Geometry SeminarTogether with Melissa McGuirl, I am organizing the Brown Applied Topology and Geometry Seminar.
I have been tutoring and teaching math for almost a decade, ranging from high school algebra and geometry to calculus and linear algebra to advanced topics like analysis and topology. Currently I am working with Cambridge Coaching, and also tutoring privately. Email me if you are interested in setting up a tutoring session.
Graduate Student Service
I have been a departmental representative to the Brown Graduate Student Council for three years.
I maintain an interest in data science in parallel with my mathematical interests. In 2017, I participated in the Brown Data Science Hackathon (Datathon). Together with my teammates, Jeroen Chua and Sunny Yang Xiao, we came in third place with a project on predicting smartphone users from accelerometer data across a variety of movements.
