I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics, Statsitics, and Computer Science at UIC. I was previously a
postdoctoral researcher at MIT and EPFL. I completed my
Ph.D. in mathematics at New York
University (Courant Institute). My advisor
was Janos Pach. My primary interests are
Discrete Geometry, Ramsey Theory,
Extremal Combinatorics, Graph Theory, and Combinatorial Number Theory. My research is supported by NSF grant DMS-1500153, an NSF CAREER award, and an Alfred Sloan Research Fellowship.

**Teachings:** Math 310 (Spring 2017). Past talks. UIC Combinatorics Seminar.
