I am a second-year mathematics graduate student at the University of Washington in Seattle.


My research interests are in primarily algebraic/arithmetic geometry, especially in connection with differential geometry, combinatorics, and homotopy theory.

Currently, I am working on projects within Brill-Noether theory, tropical geometry, and discrete Morse theory.

Here are my publications and things I have previously worked on.


Autumn Quarter:

Winter/Spring Quarter:

    • For the remainder of the academic year, I will be the TA for MATH 442/443: Differential Geometry of Curves and Surfaces.

I am also co-running the Hartshorne Reading Seminar this academic year with Alex Wang.

I completed my undergraduate degree at Amherst College, where I conducted an honors thesis under the guidance of Ivan Contreras and Alejandro Morales, using discrete Morse theory to relate the Laplacian of a simplicial triangulation of an orientable manifold to it's homotopy equivalent submanifolds.

I also really like combining art and mathematics! Here I am sculpting a Clebsch surface.

I firmly believe in Federico Ardila's axioms:

  • Axiom 1: Mathematical potential is distributed equally among different groups, irrespective of geographic, demographic, and economic boundaries.

  • Axiom 2: Everyone can have joyful, meaningful, and empowering mathematical experiences.

  • Axiom 3: Mathematics is a powerful, malleable tool that can be shaped and used differently by various communities to serve their needs.

  • Axiom 4: Every student deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.
