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 fall I am teaching Math 115 Section 131. My office hours are Monday 10-11 a.m. and Thursday 9-10 a.m.
