I am currently an Acting Assistant Professor in the math department at University of Washington, Seattle.  My current mentor is Jayadev Athreya. I finished my Ph.D in summer of 2018 at Indiana University, Bloomington, under Professor Matthias Weber.

My research interest lies broadly in hyperbolic geometry. My doctoral thesis investigates the interplay between geometric properties of various types of surfaces in Euclidean space and their induced complex structures. This involves in particular methods from hyperbolic geometry, Riemann surfaces, classical Euclidean geometry, and minimal surfaces.
