About Me

I am a sixth year PhD student in Mathematics at the University of Minnesota, working with Professor Ben Brubaker. I am currently (2021-22) supported by the University of Minnesota Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship. I did my undergraduate degree at Carleton College, graduating with a B.A. in Mathematics in 2013. My primary research interest is in algebraic and combinatorial structures in representation theory, involving objects such as quantum groups, Hecke algebras, and Heisenberg algebras, along with applications to Schubert calculus, reductive p-adic groups, and (non)symmetric functions.

I am currently on the academic job market, and value any chances to connect and talk about my research.

I received my Master's degree in Spring 2019. My oral exam paper was titled Finite Hecke Algebras and Their Characters.

I co-organized the 2019-20 Student Number Theory seminar with Joe Dickinson. For a schedule and abstracts, click here

I support inclusivity in mathematics. Here is a letter my department sent to the Minnesota Attorney General opposing an in-progress rule change that will make it more difficult for international students to study in the US, and here is a letter sent by the AMS and many other major science organizations in the US advocating that Congress allow international STEM PhDs to stay in the US after graduation (I played no part in writing the latter letter).
