About Me

Howdy! I am a rising fourth year Ph.D. student working under the supervision of Frank Sottile and Paulo Lima-Filho. My interests lie in Algebraic Geometry, Category Theory, and their applications.


During Summer 2022, I will be a research assistant to Anne Shiu at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute Undegraduate Program.

I am a participant of the AMS Math Research Communities on Applied Category Theory, mentored by John Baez.

On May, I attended the Algebraic Statistics Conference at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa.

Kelly Maluccio, Frank Sottile, Thomas Yahl and I developed a package in Macaulay2 called RealRoots for symbolically exploring, counting and locating real solutions to general polynomial systems.

Matthew Faust, Frank Sottile and I are studying interactions of spectral theory and algebraic geometry based on the work of Kutchment, Liu, Matos, Fillman, Bättig, Gieseker, Knorrer, Trubowitz and others. In particular, we want to generalize the classification of Bloch varieties arising from discrete Schrödinger operators. Together with Wencai Liu and Rodrigo Matos, we visited Louisiana State University to collaborate with Jake Fillman, Ilya Kachkovskiy and Stephen Shipman.



Together with Anne Shiu and Angelique Morvant, I organize the Directed Reading Program at Texas A&M. Moreover, together with Arpan Pal, I organize the Graduate Algebra Symposium between UT Arlington, The University of North Texas and The University of Oklahoma.
