I am a fifth-year Ph.D. student and NSF Graduate Fellow in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Notre Dame. My advisor is Claudiu Raicu.
Previously, I was an undergraduate at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

I am on the job market. Here is my research statement and CV (last updated 10/21/2019).

My interests are in algebraic geometry, commutative algebra, D-modules, and their interactions with representation theory.
I like to study homological invariants of algebraic varieties, such as syzygies and local cohomology.
More recently, I have been thinking about singularities and invariants arising from birational geometry and the theory of D-modules (e.g. multiplier ideals, Hodge ideals, Bernstein-Sato polynomials).

About Me

I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago (Bartlett, Schaumburg, Buffalo Grove).
Outside of mathematics, I am interested in listening to music (Rock, Hip hop, Techno) and film - I love to talk about movies.
In my free time I enjoy cooking, bicycling, and gardening - before pursuing math, I studied plant biology.
