I am a sixth-year graduate student in the Mathematics department at UC
Berkeley under the supervision of Alexander
. I am interested in enumerative geometry, and my current
research involves various kinds of Gromov-Witten invariants derived from
From Summer 2018 to Spring 2021 I was an NSF Graduate Student Fellow.
I am currently on the academic job market.

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.

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.
