About me

I am a Visiting Clay Fellow in the math department at Stanford University. I'm also a fellow in the Stanford Science Fellows program.

I am interested in geometric topology in dimensions 3–5, especially questions about knotted surfaces in 4-manifolds. I finished my Ph.D. in 2020 at Princeton University, where my advisor was David Gabai. I just moved from MIT, where I was an NSF postdoctoral scholar.

In my free time, I collect Rubik's Cubes and enjoy other puzzles like crosswords and acrostics.
