I'm a first year PhD student at the Hodge Insitute, University of Edinburgh supervised by Darrick Lee and Sjoerd Beentjes. I am part of the EPSRC funded Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Algebra, Geometry and Quantum Fields (AGQ).

Previously, I was at ETH Zürich where I obtained my BSc and MSc in Mathematics.

My MSc thesis entitled Optimizing Functions Based on Signed Barcodes was supervised by Sara Kališnik and Steve Oudot, whom I visited as an intern at INRIA Saclay during Fall 2022.

My bachelor's thesis entitled Examining Persistent Homology from Three Different Theoretical Perspectives was supervised by Sara Kališnik.

- During a reading course on expander graphs supervised by Afonso Bandeira, I wrote an exposition about the Alon-Bopanna bound . The bound motivates the definition of Ramanujan graphs and is critical to the theory of expander graphs.
- My final project for Algebraic Geometery 2 introduces Whitney stratifications with a view toward intersection homology . It draws from various sources and describes why algebraic varieties admit Whitney stratifications and the role these stratifications play in the definition of intersection homology.
