About Me

I am a 5th year graduate student in mathematics. I am interested in Commutative Algebra and Algebraic Geometry.

Outside of math, I like to play tennis, play chess, and make noise on the violin.

I graduated with an M.A. from the University of Pennsylvania in 2019 thanks in part to their Bridge-to-PhD program. Below is my Master’s Thesis.
