About Me

I am a second year graduate student at Berkeley advised by Robin Tucker-Drob and Ted Slaman. My main interests are primarily in Borel and measureable dynamics motivated by my past studies in combinatorics and descriptive set theory. Lately, I have been reading Topics in Orbit Equivalence and Gromov Hyperbolic Spaces.

I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University in 2021. During undergrad, I had the oppertunity to participate in the UC Santa Barbara REU and the Duluth Combinatorics REU. In summer 2021, I was a visiting researcher at the Max Planck Institute in Leipzig, Germany.

I am grateful for the support of an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship and a department graduate research fellowship. My email is my first name at Berkeley dot edu. My CV can be found here.

Teaching

Berkeley

  • In Fall 2022, I am a graduate student instructor for MATH 54: Linear Algebra and Differential Equations.
  • In Fall 2021, I was a graduate student instructor for MUSA 74: Transition to Upper-Division Mathematics.

Carnegie Mellon University

  • In Spring 2020, I was a teaching assistant and recitation instructor for 21-127: Concepts of Mathematics at Carnegie Mellon University. The course covered basic logic, set theory, proof techniques, cardinality, functions, combinatorics, probability, and elementary number theory.
  • In Summer 2019, I was a teaching assistant for 33-106: Physics I for Engineering Students.

Mentoring

  • In Fall 2021, I was a mentor for Berkeley's directed reading program. I mentored an undergraduate student through reading Yufei Zhao's notes on Graph Theory and Additive Combinatorics and Richard Stanley's Book Algebraic Combinatorics.

More About Me

I grew up in Fresno, CA. Other than math, my hobbies include board games, bouldering, painting, and clarinet. I have two bunnies whom I love very much.

Bunnies

I have two bunnies, Zsipp and Zsupp. (Zs is pronounced like the 'g' in 'beige'.) Zsipp (brown) is stubborn, good at puzzles, and often gets angry. Zsupp (white) is sweet, likes to be pet, and is motivated by carrots.
