My research interests are in algebraic combinatorics, with a focus on dynamics and relations to Schubert calculus. For a complete list of my papers, see Research.

I completed my PhD in 2016 under the guidance of Alexander Yong at UIUC, where I was an NSF Research Fellow and an Illinois Distinguished Fellow. My thesis was awarded the department's Philippe Tondeur Dissertation Prize. I spent the year 2016-17 as a Hill Assistant Professor at Rutgers University.

I received my BA from Oberlin College in 2010, with Highest Honors in Mathematics. While an undergraduate, I studied at the Budapest Semesters in Mathematics in Hungary, and participated in REUs at Wabash and Williams Colleges.
