I am a first year graduate student at the University of Washington in Seattle. My research interests are in algebraic geometry and combinatorics.

I completed my undergraduate degree at Amherst College, where I conducted an honors thesis under the guidance of Ivan Contreras and Alejandro Morales, proving that the Laplacian of a triangulation of an orientable manifold keeps track of the number of simplicialy homotopy equivalent complexes. I transferred to Amherst from Bristol Community College in Spring 2018.

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.
