I am currently a Ph.D. candidate, in my fifth year in the mathematics
department at the University of Michigan.
I am interested in algebraic geometry and commutative
algebra, especially in positive characteristic.
My advisor is Mircea
Mustaţă. I was previously an undergraduate mathematics major at Princeton
University, where my advisor was
János Kollár.
I am currently (as of Fall 2018) on the job market for postdoctoral
positions. Here is a detailed description of
my research and my Curriculum Vitæ.
