I am an incoming mathematics graduate student to the University of Washington. Prior, I was an undergraduate student at Amherst College. I transferred to Amherst from Bristol Community College in Spring 2018.

My current research interests are in algebraic geometry and algebraic combinatorics.

I firmly believe in Fredrico 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.



  1. Normality of toric rings and Rees algebras of pinched strongly stable ideals, with G. Sosa, C. Chandler, M. Liu, E. Mezinska, A. G. Moore, S. Sule, in preparation.

  2. On discrete gradient vector fields and Laplacians of simplicial complexes, with I. Contreras, submitted. Preprint available at arXiv:2105.05388.
