I am a fifth-year Ph.D. student in Mathematics at Princeton University. My advisor is Peter Sarnak.
I will be a C.L.E. Moore Instructor at MIT starting this Fall 2018.
My research is on the interactions between number theory, algebraic geometry, low-dimensional topology, and dynamics.
Some of my current interests are:
- Dynamics and arithmetic of log Calabi-Yau varieties;
- Nonlinear arithmeticity in mapping class group dynamics;
- Geometric structures on surfaces and their moduli; and
- Applications of Diophantine ideas to topology.
Here is my
