I am a Mathematics Ph.D. candidate at the University of California, Santa Cruz, currently studying Modular Representation Theory under the supervision of Robert Boltje
. Prior to beginning my Ph.D., I worked as a software 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 have a strong interest in mathematics education and outreach, specifically concerning equity and inclusivity within mathematics and other STEM fields. I strongly believe there are many institutional, cultural, and socioeconomic barriers that restrict participation and impede diversity in mathematics, and to combat this, I focus on implementing inclusive and equitable teaching practices in the classroom.

Hello! Welcome to my website. I’ve been putting off finishing this thing forever - it feels good to (mostly) get it up and running!
