I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at Louisiana State University, and my mentor is Shea Vela-Vick. My primary interest is in low-dimensional topology, and specifically Heegaard Floer and knot Floer homology; however, I am trying to learn as much as I could about all kinds of mathematics, especially in related fields, including symplectic geometry.

I received my Ph.D. from Columbia University in May 2017, and my advisors were Peter Ozsváth and Robert Lipshitz. My dissertation is available here.

While at Columbia, I organized the Graduate Student Topology Seminar in Fall 2014, and co-organized the Topology Reading Seminar in Fall 2016.

I now co-organize the Topology Seminar at LSU with Shea.
