I am a third-year graduate student at the University of Georgia. I earned my undergraduate degree in Mathematics at the University of California, San Diego, where my undergraduate research was in homotopy theory and spectral sequences with Justin Roberts. I am broadly interested in moduli and classification problems, algebraic, homological, and homotopical invariants, and topics in the Langlands program.

You can find a copy of my CV here. (last updated Fall 2021).

In Spring 2022, I am teaching Math 2250 (Calculus), and co-organizing the UGA graduate student seminar with Arvind Suresh. See UGA GSS.
