About Me

I am a sixth-year graduate student in the Mathematics department at UC Berkeley under the supervision of Alexander Givental. I am interested in enumerative geometry, and my current research involves various kinds of Gromov-Witten invariants derived from K-theoretic ones.
From Summer 2018 to Spring 2021 I was an NSF Graduate Student Fellow.
I am currently on the academic job market.
My CV is available here. A summary of my past and current research interests are available here.

I grew up in Ithaca, NY, and subsequently did my undergraduate degree at Columbia University. Aside from math, I enjoy drawing, lifting weights and exploring new places.

If you have questions about any of my work, or would like to collaborate on something, don't hesitate to contact me.


  Current research: I am currently working on a new class of Gromov-Witten invariants based on the topological Euler characteristic. More of this research will be published as I find more applications of this theory. Currently a draft is available here.
