I am a postdoc in the Math Department at U-M.

Logic and set theory are my primary research interests. My research focuses on definable sets of reals, especially in forcing extensions and under large-cardinal hypotheses. I am also interested in what can be said about mad families and other combinatorial objects from a descriptive-set-theoretic perspective.

In June 2018 I finished my PhD at UCLA under the supervision of Itay Neeman.

During the academic year 2018–2019, I was at Cornell, where I taught 1110 and 3110 and worked with Justin Moore.
