I am currently visiting the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences, working under the group "Spectral Hypergraph Theory" led by Raffaella Mulas. Starting fall 2022, I will be a postdoc at the Shanghai Center for Mathematical Sciences under the supervision of Hehui Wu. I received my PhD from the University of California San Diego, where I am very fortunate to be advised by Jacques Verstraëte. Here is my CV.

My research interests lie primarily in extremal combinatorics, but I keep my brain open for any interesting math problems. My Erdős number is 3.
