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.
