I am a fourth-year graduate student in the Department of Mathematics at Harvard University. My advisor is Mark Kisin.

My research interests include the Langlands program and related topics in algebraic geometry and representation theory.

I completed my B.S. in mathematics at the University of Kentucky in 2016.
