About Me

I am a fourth-year graduate student in mathematics interested in the intersection between differential geometry and partial differential equations. Specifically, I study extrinsic geometric flows in hyperbolic space and related classes of manifolds. My advisor is Adam Jacob.

Here's my CV, last updated September 2018.

Teaching Information

Current term:

MAT-67: Modern Linear Algebra

All class information can be found on Canvas .
Update: I promised some additional video lectures on the final chapter of the textbook, but it appears the files are too large to upload to Canvas. So I'll post them here (Apologies for the low-tech setup for these videos).
