I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at the University of British Columbia. My mentors are Jim Bryan, Kalle Karu and Zinovy Reichstein. I will move to the University of Southern California in Aug 2024. 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.

I often speak in seminars of several research groups at my own school.

Teaching 

I am currently (Fall 2023) teaching matrix algebra (MATH 221) at UBC. If you are a student, check the Canvas page. 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.
