I am a Parekh and DeSapio Family Fellow and postdoctoral assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Michigan.

After pursuing pure mathematics research as a graduate student, my interests have shifted towards doing research with mathematics instead of in mathematics.

My mathematical expertise is in algebraic geometry, commutative algebra, homological algebra, and some parts of harmonic analysis.
My postdoctoral mentor is Mattias Jonsson. I finished my mathematics Ph.D. at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln in 2018, where I was advised by Wenliang Zhang.
