I am currently an NSF Postdoctoral Fellow at Imperial College. My supervising scientist is Richard Thomas.

I also spent the academic year 2018-2019 here at Imperial College, as a Postdoctoral Research Associate.

I received my PhD from Columbia University in 2018. My thesis advisor was Andrei Okounkov. 

My research is in representation theory, algebraic geometry and mathematical physics, with a particular focus on the representation-theoretic and combinatorial structures that underlie the geometry of moduli spaces.
