I am a third-year Research Assistant Professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago.  I have broad research interests, including Algebraic Geometry, Arithmetic Geometry, Combinatorics, and Computational Mathematics. I am particularly interested in rational curves and the birational geometry of hypersurfaces.  I am a student of Joe Harris. Here is my CV.


I am currently teaching Math 215. I taught Math 180 in Fall 2015 and Fall 2016, Math 554 in Spring 2016, Math 215 in Spring 2017, and Math 210 in Fall 2017.
