I am a fourth-year graduate student in mathematics at Tufts University working under the supervision of Robert Lemke Oliver. Broadly speaking, my interests include number theory, arithmetic statistics, and arithmetic geometry. I graduated from Brown in 2017 and earned my Master's from Tufts in 2019. I can be reached at email@example.com.
For the 2021-22 academic year, I am one of two head TAs in the math department and co-organize our Graduate Development Seminar. I am also teaching one calculus recitation.
Here is my CV.
I am mainly interested in number theory and arithmetic statistics. Here are my papers/preprints:
Enumerating D4 Quartics and a Galois Group Bias Over Function Fields (arXiv, submitted)
I have also worked in computational genomics. The papers and abstracts below are the result of collaboration with Eli Van Allen, David Liu, and others at the Dana-Farber Cancer Insitute. My contributions primarily dealt with applications of non-negative matrix factorization to problems about mutational signatures. Check out related work from the Van Allen Lab. Though this is not my current research focus, I am very interested in revisiting some of these ideas with topological methods. Research from this work can be found at PubMed or on Google Scholar.
