About me

I am a fifth-year mathematics Ph.D. student at Princeton University. I am interested in geometric topology in dimensions three and four, especially questions about knots and knotted surfaces. I expect to graduate in June 2020. In my free time, I collect Rubik's Cubes and enjoy other puzzles like crosswords and KenKen.

In July 2020, I will begin an NSF postdoctoral fellowship at MIT. In July 2021, I will join the Stanford Science Fellows.

Things I organize

I organize GT GAPS, which is a Zoom seminar for graduate students and postdocs interested in geometric topology (usually in dimension four). This currently runs on Thursdays at 11am EDT; email me for details or check out the website.

I am co-organizing (with JungHwan Park) a topic group on knots, surfaces, and 4-manifolds in the Nearly Carbon Neutral Geometric Topology Conference taking place online from June 1–14.

I am co-organizing (with Mark Hughes and Jeffrey Meier) a special session on knotted surfaces and concordances in the 2020 Fall Western AMS Sectional Meeting at the University of Utah, October 24–25.
