I am on the postdoc market for the 2024-2025 academic year!
I have been awarded a UC Santa Cruz Dissertation Year Fellowship for the 2024-2025 academic year! This allows me to travel much more easily. If you are interested in working with me or want me to give a talk, please reach out!

I am a mathematics Ph.D. candidate at the University of California Santa Cruz. I study the modular representation theory of finite groups under the supervision of Robert Boltje. See my research page for more details.

Prior to beginning my Ph.D., I was a platform engineer at SupplyFrame, using computer vision and natural language processing to optimize their services. I completed my undergraduate degree at Harvey Mudd College in 2017 (WIBSTR), with a major in Mathematics and a concentration in Political Studies, focusing on environmental and ethnic politics.

Beyond research, I am strongly interested in mathematics education and outreach, specifically concerning equity and inclusivity within mathematics and other STEM fields.

Here are links to my CV, my Google Scholar page, arXiv, and ResearchGate page.

I may as well offer some updates since the last posts. Unfortunately, my dissertation topic has shifted a bit away working directly with the abelian defect group conjecture, and instead pivoted towards working with a class of invertible chain complexes which I’ve coined “Endotrivial complexes,” so the older blog posts...
