I'm a mathematician currently holding an NSF Postdoctoral Fellowship jointly at Princeton University and the Institute for Advanced Study mentored by John Pardon and Helmut Hofer.

My interests include symplectic/contact topology, dynamical systems, manifold topology and symplectic field theory.

I received my PhD at the University of California, Berkeley in 2021 under the supervision of Michael Hutchings

I have been honored to receive a UC President's Postdoctoral Fellowship, the Herb Alexander Prize for outstanding thesis, an NSF Graduate Fellowship, a UC Chancellor's Fellowship, and the Rose Hills Foundation Fellowship.
