About me
I am an NSF postdoc in mathematics at the University of Texas at Austin. Previously, I was a graduate student at the University of Virginia.

My research is on homotopy theory and algebraic K-theory. I am also interested in fields that interface with these, including category theory, algebraic topology, knot theory, and algebraic number theory.

Take a look at my 10 minute video summarizing some of my recent research and its connections to the Riemann Hypothesis, available here.

I have been involved with the USA Math Olympiad and International Math Olympiad for years, currently serving on the USA Math Olympiad Editorial Board. As a graduate student, I worked regularly with local middle and high school math clubs and trained the UVA Putnam team.

Outside of mathematics, I enjoy the outdoors, cooking, reading, and playing piano.
