## Research

My research interests include Analytic Number Theory, Circle Method, Harmonic Analysis, Diophantine Approximation, Partitions, and Additive Combinatorics. I am primarily interested in problems at the interface of the discrete and the continuous. I completed my Ph.D. at Pennsylvania State University in 2016 under the supervision of R.C. Vaughan. In Spring 2017, I was a postdoc at MSRI in the Analytic Number Theory program.
