I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow and Lecturer
at Princeton University,
partially funded by the National Science Foundation.
My mentor is János
I am interested in algebraic geometry and commutative
algebra, especially in positive characteristic.
I was previously a Ph.D. student at the University of Michigan, where my advisor was Mircea Mustaţă.
I am currently (Fall 2021) on the job market for academic jobs.
You can see my CV
and my Research Statement is available upon request.
