CV: Curriculum Vitae 2020

In June 2022 I was awarded a PhD in Mathematics at UC Davis, working with Motohico Mulase and Tudor Dimofte. My research interests include quantum topological invariants, moduli of Higgs bundles, and quantization.

Starting Fall 2022, I will be a postdoc at Yale University, working with Alexander Goncharov.

My bachelors degree is in both math and physics and from Georgetown University, in Washington, DC. Marcos Rigol was my senior thesis adviser. Between degrees I worked for a couple years as a systems and infrastructure engineer at a tech company. (The company has since been acquired by Oracle.)

During graduate school I was a wilderness guide for the Outdoor Adventure program at Davis.

Exploring the connection between planar graphs and projections of embedded convex polyhedra. This was my final project for an Experimental Mathematics course offered spring 2017 at UC Davis.
The ADO Invariants are a q-Holonomic Family
Joint with Tudor Dimofte, Stavros Garoufalidis, and Nathan Geer.
