About

I am an algebraic geometer with interests in Gromov-Witten theory and machine learning. In Gromov-Witten theory, I work on problems relating to classical enumerative geometry as well as more modern curve counting theories, and my work has connections to representation theory and physics. In machine learning, I am working on improving our understanding of the mathematical foundations of machine learning by studying the geometry of the central objects in deep learning.

I am currently a visitor at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. Prior to that, I spent a semester at MSRI and before that was an NSF postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University. I did my Ph.D with Rahul Pandharipande at Princeton University and was an undergraduate at MIT.

I am applying for jobs this year.
