I’m a rising second year PhD student at the University of California, Irvine. My advisor is Jesse Wolfson. I am interested in studying the topology of algebraic/analytic varieties and their applications to number theory, using concepts and tools that have emerged from the philosophy of motives. As an undergraduate, I created the UChicago Applied Mathematics Club (UCAMC). Currently, I am a middle school mentor at Math CEO, a community educational outreach program designed to increase the number of talented students from diverse backgrounds who pursue higher education in STEM and/or STEM careers.
