I am currently a Ph.D. candidate, in my third year in the mathematics
department at the University of Michigan.
I am interested in algebraic geometry and commutative
algebra. My advisor is Mircea
Mustaţă. I was previously an undergraduate mathematics major at Princeton
University, where my advisor was
