About Me

Starting in Fall 2021, I will be a Postdoctoral Research Fellow and Lecturer at Princeton University, partially funded by the National Science Foundation. Previously I was a Ph.D. student at the University of Michigan under the supervision of Michael Zieve.

I am interested in algebraic number theory and algebraic geometry.

Teaching and Mentoring

I have served as the primary lecturer for eight semesters of courses from the introductory calculus sequence at the University of Michigan. I have also served as a graduate teaching assistant for two semesters of differential equations. In Fall 2020 I was the primary lecturer for two sections of Math 115 at the University of Michigan.

I jointly mentored three undergraduate students (Mengmeng Wang, Shuyang Wang, Ziyi Zhang) along with Christin Bibby and Hailun Zheng in the LoG(M) program at the University of Michigan in Winter 2019.
