I am a graduate student at UC Berkeley where I am fortunate to be advised by Nikhil Srivastava and supported by a NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. In 2020, I graduated from Princeton University where I was fortunate to be advised by Peter Sarnak for my senior thesis.

Typesetting and exposition
My CV; some recent presentations; selected code.
I founded and direct YMath, a program that provides free tutoring in math to elementary, middle, and high school students in the Bergen County area who are unable to afford a private tutor.
