"God created infinity, and man, unable to understand infinity, had to invent finite sets." --Gian-Carlo Rota

About Me

I received my Ph.D. from UC Berkeley, advised by Mark Haiman. I am currently an NSF Postdoctoral Fellow and Krener Assistant Professor at UC Davis.

My current interests lie in algebraic combinatorics, specifically focusing on symmetric function theory and its connections with geometry and representation theory. I am particularly interested in Schubert calculus, crystal base theory, and Macdonald polynomials.

As an illustration of my area of research, as well as a directory for this website, the menu at the upper left is a Young tableau. Feel free to conjugate it any time you wish.
