About Me

Howdy! I am a 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.



February. I participated in the ICERM Hot Topics workshop on Algebraic Geometry in Spectral Theory in Providence, Rhode Island.

January. I gave two talks at the Joint Mathematics Meetings 2023 in Boston, Massachusetts:


October. I attended the Modern Math Workshop in the SACNAS NDiSTEM Conference in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

August. 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.

Summer. I was assistant to Anne Shiu and Federico Ardila at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute Undegraduate Program.

I participated in the AMS Math Research Communities on Applied Category Theory, mentored by John Baez.

May. I participated in the Notre Dame Future Faculty Workshop, and I attended the Algebraic Statistics Conference at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa.

March. I gave a workshop at the MSC SCOLA 35th Student Conference on Latinx Affairs, titled "Mathematics in the Midst of Trials".



Together with Josué Tonelli-Cueto and Thomas Yahl, I organized the special session "Applications and Computation in Algebraic Geometry" during the 5th Annual Meeting of the SIAM Texas-Louisiana Section.

During Fall 2022, I was a mentor in the Twoples Program.

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