Hello! I am a Postdoctoral Assistant Professor and Research Fellow at the University of Michigan. My mentor is Professor Mircea Mustaţă, and my research is supported by the Number Theory Research Training Grant (RTG).
I am interested in algebraic geometry in positive characteristic and over non-closed fields.

I obtained my PhD from Princeton University in 2021 under the supervision of Professor János Kollár.
Before that, I was an undergraduate at Columbia University, where I graduated in 2016.
Outside of math, I like baking sourdough bread, trying various pastries, and occasionally drawing.
