I am a fifth year Ph.D. candidate, NSF Graduate Research Fellow, and ARCS Scholar Fellow in the UCSD Mathematics department, working under my advisor, Professor Melvin Leok. Roughly speaking, my research is focused on variational discretizations of differential equations, and their applications to mathematical physics, control, and optimization. 

I received an M.A. in Applied Mathematics from UCSD in 2019. I graduated magna cum laude from UCSD in 2017, with a B.S. in Mathematics (Honors with Highest Distinction) and a B.S. in Physics. 

Here is my CV (updated October 19th, 2022).
