I am currently an Assistant Profesor (RTPC) at the University of Southern California. I was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of British Columbia in academic years 20222024; my mentors were Jim Bryan, Kalle Karu and Zinovy Reichstein. I received my PhD at the Department of Mathematics at the University of Michigan–Ann Arbor in Apr 2022. My thesis advisor is Michael Zieve and my coadvisor is Jeffrey Lagarias. I am interested in the interface of algebraic geometry, number theory and combinatorics. Among other things, I have worked on arithmetic statistics, moduli spaces, discrete random matrix theory, partitions, random permutations, Diophantine equations and arithmetic dynamics. Here are my CV and my research statement as of Nov 2023.

Teaching 

Currently (Fall 2024), I am teaching Linear Algebra and Linear Differential Equations (MATH 225) and Applied Combinatorics (MATH 432). If you are an enrolled student, please go to Brightspace for course webpage. At UBC, I previously taught Differential and Integral Calculus (MATH 100, 101), Linear Algebra (MATH 221), and Multivariable Calculus (MATH 200). At the University of Michigan, I previously taught MATH 105: Data, Functions and Graphs, MATH 115: Calculus I, MATH 116: Calculus II and EECS 203: Discrete Mathematics.
