Hello! I am an Assistant Professor in the Combinatorics and Optimization department at the University of Waterloo.

I received my Ph.D. at UC Berkeley in 2016 under the guidance of Lauren Williams. After a year as a Presidential Postdoctoral Scholar at UCLA, I was a Tamarkin Assistant Professor and National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Mathematics at Brown for a few years. I joined the University of Waterloo in 2021.

My research interests are in the field of algebraic combinatorics, motivated by connections to statistical mechanics and representation theory. Here is a link to my research papers.
