**About me**

I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Mathematics. Currently, I am interested in quantum many-body problems related to quantum spin systems. I am also interested in operator algebras, particularly C*-dynamical systems. My adviser is Bruno Nachtergaele.

I entered the program in fall 2015. Prior, I completed my BA in Mathematics at the University of California, Berkeley.
