I am a Postdoctoral Instructor at the Department of Mathematics of the University of Texas at Austin. Previously, I was a S.E.W. Visiting Assistant Professor at the Department of Mathematics of the University of California, San Diego.
I completed my Ph.D. at the Mathematics Department of Stanford University in 2018 under the guidance of Professor Jun Li. Before that, I completed my undergraduate studies at Trinity College, University of Cambridge in 2012.

My main research interests span Donaldson-Thomas theory and other enumerative theories of Calabi-Yau manifolds, moduli spaces and stacks of sheaves and complexes, derived categories and derived algebraic geometry, and logarithmic geometry.

Here are my Curriculum Vitae, recordings of a recent seminar talk and colloquium talk and a research brief for a general audience.
