About Me

I am a fifth-year PhD student in mathematics at MIT, working with Alex Postnikov. I am on the academic job market in Fall 2020. I was an undergraduate at the University of Minnesota where Vic Reiner was my honors thesis advisor.

I am currently supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. You can find my CV here.

Research interests

I have quite broad research interests, centered around algebraic, geometric, and enumerative combinatorics and representation theory. You can find some of my research here.


I am actively involved in several mentoring programs at MIT. I have mentored research projects through MIT's PRIMES program for high school students and its UROP+ program for undergraduates. In 2019 I was a Lusztig PRIMES mentor . I have also been a mentor for MIT's Directed Reading Program.
