I am a fourth year Ph.D. candidate in mathematics at the University of Michigan. My advisors are Rob Lazarsfeld, who is now at Stony Brook University, and Karen Smith, who is here at Michigan. My research interests are in algebraic geometry and commutative algebra, and I'm currently thinking about vector bundles on Hilbert schemes. I graduated in June 2010 with a B.A. in mathematics from the University of Chicago.

In summer 2013, I mentored an advanced high school student through the Michigan Mentorships Program. We talked mostly about real analysis and measure theory and worked through problems together.
In summer 2013, I organized mini-courses in the department taught by and aimed at graduate students. You can find the list of courses here.
In summer 2012, I ran and taught a weekly seminar on divisors and line bundles in algebraic geometry.
