My research interests are in algebraic combinatorics, with a focus on dynamics, modern symmetric function theory, and relations to Schubert calculus.


I completed my PhD in 2016 under the guidance of Alexander Yong at UIUC, where I was an National Science Foundation Research Fellow and an Illinois Distinguished Fellow. My thesis won the Philippe Tondeur Dissertation Prize.


After a year as a Hill Assistant Professor at Rutgers University, I was Assistant Professor and National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Michigan for three years.


I joined the University of Waterloo in 2020.
