About Me

I am a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University. Starting Fall 2022 I will be a Veblen Research Instructor and NSF Postdoctoral Fellow at Princeton University/IAS. You may also find me at the MSRI program on Floer Homotopy Theory in Berkeley, CA.

As a mathematician, I am interested in symplectic geometry, and I think about how the many pseudoholomorphic curves in a symplectic manifold are organized into elaborate and useful algebraic structures. Lately I've been finishing a project regarding several problems problems in higher-dimensional Hamiltonian dynamics, and am excited about the Fueter equations and about certain relations between symplectic invariants and number theory.

Beyond that, I am interested in applications of mathematics, broadly construed. It seems to me that the intersection of machine learning, physics, geometry, and probability theory is both rich and important.

I got my Ph.D from Columbia University in 2021 under the direction of Mohammed Abouzaid.

My favorite book is Edmund Spenser's Faerie Queene.
