I am an NSF Graduate Research Fellow and third year math PhD student at UC San Diego. My research interests are in combinatorics, and I am particularly interested in graph theory, extremal combinatorics, and enumerative combinatorics. My advisers are Fan Chung-Graham and Jacques Verstraete. My CV can be found here.

With Jason O'Neill I co-organize the Graduate Student Combinatorics Seminar at UCSD. For more info, see here.

With Vaki Nikitopoulos I co-organize the Graduate Student Seminar at UCSD. For more info, see here.
