Hi! I’m a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Georgia Tech School of Mathematics, as well as a postdoctoral fellow with the Algorithms and Randomness Center (ARC).

About Me:

My research interests are in extremal and probabilistic combinatorics and their intersections with statistical physics. I earned my mathematics PhD in 2023 from Rutgers University, under the supervision of Bhargav Narayanan.

In my “spare time,” I perform my one-woman play Uniform Convergence at math departments around the country. I started writing it when I was an undergrad at Sarah Lawrence College where I concentrated in mathematics and theater. You can find more info about it on the Theater page.

I am also the incoming director of MathILy-Er, a summer program for high school students where we teach (primarily) discrete math via inquiry-based instruction. Before that, I was a Lead Instructor in 2022, and before that, I was an Apprentice Instructor with {MathILy, MathILy-Er} from 2015-21. Even before that, I was the MathILy PRiME from 2014-15.
