About me
I am currently a graduate student in mathematics at the University of Virginia. Next year I will be an NSF postdoc at the University of Texas at Austin.

My research interests broadly include homotopy theory and fields that interface with it, especially K-theory, topology, category theory, and (derived) algebraic geometry.

I have been closely involved with math competitions and recreational math for years, first as a student and now by working with students from middle school to college. Most recently, I attended the International Math Olympiad in 2015 as Deputy Leader for the 1st place United States team, and I have run UVA's Putnam and problem solving course 2015-17.

Outside of mathematics, I like to spend time hiking, camping, or doing just about anything outdoors. When indoors, I enjoy cooking and reading. I also have a variety of other academic interests including linguistics and history.
