I am currently a second year graduate student in mathematics at Stanford University. I am working with Professor Yakov Eliashberg.

My interests lie in symplectic topology and differential geometry.



  1. (with Woodward and Ziltener) Morphisms of CoHFT Algebras and Quantization of the Kirwan map (pdf).


Stanford Symplectic Topology Seminar

Stanford Student Symplectic Seminar (S^2 x S^2)

Faculty Area Research Seminar

Teaching: I am currently not TA-ing any class.

Courses: I am currently taking Cohomology of Groups and h-principle.


Old stuffs: I used to be interested in plane geometry when I was in high school. Click me.

Conferences and Workshops:

Integrable system in Gromov-Witten and SFT (January 30-Feb 3)

Contact topology in higher dimension (May 21-May 25)

CAST Summer School 2012 (July 9- July 20)

Workshop in SFT VI (July 21-July 27)

Holomorphic Curves and Low Dimensional Topology (July 28th-August 11)

Symplectic resources: There are wonderful videos on MSRI, IAS and Clay Institute websites. If someone interested in watching these videos with me, we can make a video seminar and discuss about these topics.
