I am currently a Postdoctoral Scholar at University of Washington. My mentor is Jayadev Athreya. I finished my Ph.D in summer of 2018 at Indiana University under Matthias Weber. In Fall 2019, I was at MSRI for the Holomorphic Differentials in Mathematics and Physics program.

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 particular methods from hyperbolic geometry, Riemann surfaces, classical Euclidean geometry, and minimal surfaces. Projects that I’ve recently been working on involve computation of automorphism groups, counting saddle connections on translation surfaces, hyperplane sections on periodic surfaces, and computing the monodromy of square-tiled surfaces.

Page 107 of Illustrating Mathematics (published by AMS) and this post on GeekWire also mention my work.
