I am a postdoctoral assistant professor and research fellow in the number theory group at the University of Michigan. My research is on the zeros of L-functions and the distribution of L-functions in the critical strip.
In June 2021 I completed my PhD at UCLA under the supervision of Terence Tao.


This winter I am teaching Math 354. My office hours are Monday 1-2 p.m. and Wednesday 1-3 p.m.
