I am a Patricia Caldwell Postdoctoral Scholar in mathematics at Virginia Tech. I received my PhD from UC Berkeley in 2022, under the supervision of Alexander Givental.

I am interested in enumerative geometry, and my current research involves various kinds of Gromov-Witten invariants derived from \(K\)-theoretic ones. My current and future research directions are discussed in more detail in my research statement

From Summer 2018 to Spring 2021 I was an NSF Graduate Student Fellow.

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. I also recently have become interested in machine learning, my projects related to that area are available on my GitHub page (link at the bottom of the screen).

If you have questions about any of my work, or would like to collaborate on something, don’t hesitate to contact me.
