About me.

I am an NSF Postdoctoral Fellow at Columbia University in mathematics. I received my Ph.D at Stanford University under the direction of Yakov Eliashberg in 2017. More details can be found in my CV.

Research interests.

I work in symplectic topology, a field of math with close connections to smooth topology, algebraic geometry, homological algebra, and mathematical physics. My research focuses on flexibility and rigidity phenomena in symplectic topology, symplectic Morse theory and applications to the Fukaya category, and symplectic interpretations of results in algebraic K-theory and homologial algebra.
