I am an Assistant Professor in the math department at Northwestern University. Before that, I was a Gibbs Assistant Professor
at Yale University and a Visiting Assistant Professor at Princeton University. In 2017, I received my Ph.D. from Princeton University under the supervision of Professor
My research is partially supported by NSF Grant DMS-2148266 (formerly DMS-2001317).
