Teaching: Summer 2023: Princeton RTG Summer School. Here are some informal and preliminary notes.

 

About me: I finished my PhD at UCLA in 2017. My advisor was Ciprian Manolescu.

I study low dimensional topology using symplectic geometry.

My research is partially supported by NSF grants DMS-1703685 and DMS-2204375 and a Sloan Research Fellowship. In Fall of 2024, I will be moving to University of Oregon.
