About Me

I'm an assistant professor at the University of Southern California. I work on problems in representation theory, geometry, and combinatorics that are informed by theoretical physics, and am supported by NSF CAREER grant DMS-2143922.

In Spring 2023 I am teaching both sections of MATH 430 "Theory of Numbers". Course information and communications are available through Blackboard.

Other Stuff

I was previously a postdoctoral researcher at the Center for Quantum Mathematics and Physics at UC Davis. Before that I was supported by NSF Postdoctoral Research Fellowship DMS-1502845 at the University of Texas at Austin.
I organize the annual Los Angeles Workshop on Representations and Geometry (LAWRGe, /lärj/). LAWRGe 2024 will be held June 10-14, will be on "Relative Langlands Duality", and will be mentored by David Ben-Zvi, Yiannis Sakellaridis, and Akshay Venkatesh. You can find information about previous workshops here: 2022, 2023.
I like playing music, and as an undergraduate I studied classical guitar at the UT Austin School of Music.
I previously worked on machine learning and perception algorithms for self-driving cars as a research consultant for Helm.ai.
