I am a fifth-year PhD student in the Geometric Data Processing Group at MIT, studying with Professor Justin Solomon. My research leverages ideas from differential and algebraic geometry, topology, and mathematical physics toward computational applications.

Previously, I spent a year at the University of Cambridge studying Part III of the Mathematical Tripos. Prior to that, I was an undergraduate at Harvard, where I was advised by Professor Steven Gortler. I also interned at Pixar Research, where I worked with Fernando de Goes on tools for manipulating discrete vector fields and on a fluid simulator based on power diagrams.

I am very grateful to be supported by a Hertz Fellowship and a MathWorks Fellowship.

In my spare time, I enjoy singing, baking sourdough bread, and keeping bees.
