I work in algebraic geometry. Specifically, I am currently interested in intersection theory on moduli spaces, especially those related to the moduli spaces of curves, abelian varieties, and K3 surfaces. My previous work was on the dimension of the variety of lines on a Fano complete intersection.
The webpage for the UCSD Algebraic Geometry Seminar is here.
Last year I co-organized the American Graduate Student Algebraic Geometry Seminar (AGSAGS) with Roberto Albesiano, Lena Ji, Jennifer Li and Aline Zanardini.
Some quarters, I organize a student learning algebraic geometry seminar at UCSD:
I have been lead instructor for the following courses.
In 2021, I was accepted into the Summer Graduate Teaching Scholar Program.
In 2020-2021, I was one of the two Senior Teaching Assistants, and in 2019-2020 I was one of the Junior Teaching Assistants. This means that I coordinated and taught the course MATH 500, which is an introduction to teaching for graduate students, and helped handle TA related matters for the department. I was a teaching assistant for the following courses.
I currently volunteer as a tutor with East Palo Alto Tennis and Tutoring.
I have served on the graduate affairs committee in the UCSD mathematics department since 2018.
I was the president of the Mathematics Graduate Student Council at UCSD from the beginning of the 2018-2019 academic year until the end of the 2019-2020 academic year.
Before the pandemic, I volunteered to tutor refugee students at a local school with San Diego Refugee Tutoring.
In spring 2018, I led five undergraduates through a course on algebraic curves as a part of UCSD's RTG in Algebra, Algebraic Geometry, and Number Theory.
