I am a PhD student of mathematics at the University of California, Irvine, studying analysis and geometry. I am particularly interested in spectral geometry, microlocal/semiclassical analysis, dynamical systems and inverse problems arising in mathematical physics. My advisor is Hamid Hezari. I am also president of the American Mathematical Society at UC Irvine. I am currently on leave as a program associate at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute for the Semester on Microlocal Analysis.

I received my Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics from UNC-Chapel Hill in May 2014. I have been partially supported by NSF Grant DMS 1500703 and the GAANN fellowship, but have also been a teaching assistant for many undergraduate/graduate classes (see Teaching).
