I am an NSF Graduate Research Fellow and fifth year math PhD student at UC San Diego. I expect to graduate in June 2022. My adviser is Jacques Verstraëte. Starting Fall 2022 I will be an NSF Mathematical Sciences Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Rutgers University under the supervision of Bhargav Narayanan. My CV can be found here.

My research interests are in combinatorics, and I am particularly interested in graph theory, extremal combinatorics, and probabilistic combinatorics. Many of the problems I work on involve extremal properties of F-free hypergraphs and of random objects such as random graphs and permutations; but I am happy to work on any problem as long as it's interesting or fun!

I am currently involved with organizing the following conferences and seminars:
