Profile Picture

About Me: I am a first year PhD student at Princeton. I am interested in algebraic geometry and arithmetic geometry. I am supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.

From 2022 to 2023, I did Part III of the Mathematical Tripos at Cambridge, where I was supported by a Churchill Scholarship. From 2018 to 2022, I was an undergraduate at the University of Maryland, where I was advised by Thomas Haines.
