I'm currently a Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Rochester. Before coming here, I did my undergrad in math at University of Michigan, completed masters degrees in mathematics (Part III) at Cambridge and in science and technology studies at University College London while studying in the UK as a Marshall Scholar, and most recently completed my PhD in math at UC Berkeley in 2019, advised by Xinyi Yuan.
Additionally, I serve as communications director for the Juara Foundation, and spend my summers teaching music and leading education, health, and sustainable technology projects in Mato Grosso, Brazil. I can be found teaching and performing on violin in both the US and Brazil (and occasionally further afield).
Outside of academic and foundation work, I enjoy distance running, playing music, photography, and working on a 1994 VW Kombi I've converted to run on solar power.
