I am a second year math PhD student at UCSD. My research interests are in combinatorics and probability and in particular both

Extremal set theory and Random Matrix theory. I am currently reading with Jacques Verstraete and Jonathan Novak.
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 (GSCS) at UCSD. For more info, see (here).

### Papers and preprints:

- Bollobás-type inequalities on set k-tuples - In preparation
- On the poset and asymptotics of Tesler matrices (pdf) The Electronic Journal of Combinatorics, 2018.

### Research Talks and Poster Sessions:

- Bollobás-type inequalities on set k-tuples; UCSD Combinatorics Seminar, 2019
- On the poset and asymptotics of Tesler matrices; Poster session ALGECOM at UIUC, 2017
- On asymptotics and combinatorics of Tesler matrices in diagonal harmonics; Poster session at Joint Math Meeting in Seattle, 2016

### Teaching:

For the Fall 2018 Quarter, I will be TAing Math 109. My office hours are Tuesday 3-4 PM and Thursday 4-6 PM.
In the past, I have been a teaching assistant in the following courses.
- Math 10C: Calculus III (Evaluations)
- Math 187A: Introduction to Crytography (n/a)
- Math 184A: Combinatorics (n\a)
- Math 20B: Calculus II (Evaluations)

(n/a indicates that
there were not enough evaluations submitted to release the results. This is done to protect the anonymity of
the students. )

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).
### Miscellaneous:

Outside of math, I like to run and play and watch basketball. I also currently serve as a representative for the math department

in
the Graduate Student Association. For more info on this, see (here).
