I am a third year math PhD student at UCSD. My research interests are in combinatorics and probability and in particular
Extremal set theory. My advisor is Jacques Verstraete. Before I was at UCSD, I did my undergrad at UCLA and graduated in 2017.
Along with Sam Spiro, I organize the Graduate Student Combinatorics Seminar (ABACUS) at UCSD. For more info, see (here).
I am on the organizing committee for the Graduate Student Combinatorics Conference which will be hosted at UCSD
in March 2020.
For more info, see (here).

Through the ABACUS graduate student seminar, we have compiled the following unpolished notes on a particular topic each
term at UC San Diego.

For the Winter 2020 Quarter, I will not be teaching.
In the past, I have been a teaching assistant in the following courses.

While I was in undergrad at UCLA, I served as an assistant instructor at the Los Angeles Math Circle where I worked with
children from 6th to 9th grade. Read more about LAMC (here).
Outside of math, I like to run and play and watch basketball. I also currently serve as a representative for the math department
the Graduate Student Association. For more info on this, see (here). I am also serving on the Climate Action and Policy Committee (CAP)
within the GSA which was recently featured (here).
