About Me

I am an RTG Postdoctoral Research Associate in Mathematics at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, working with Professor Alexander Yong.

Previously, I was a Szego Assistant Professor in Mathematics at Stanford University, working with Professor Daniel Bump.

I got my Ph.D. in 2022 at the University of Minnesota, working with Professor Ben Brubaker.

My primary research interest is in algebraic and combinatorial structures in representation theory, involving objects such as quantum groups, Hecke algebras, and Heisenberg algebras, along with applications to Schubert calculus, reductive p-adic groups, and (non)symmetric functions. Much of my work involves solvable lattice models.

Math 418 students, please see the course webpage here.

I was a co-organizer for a 2024 JMM special session on solvable lattice models.

I am a co-organizer of the UIUC Summer School in Combinatorial Lie Theory.

I am a co-organizer of the UIUC Algebra-Geometry-Combinatorics seminar.

For the most up-to-date list of my papers and preprints, see here.

I support inclusivity in mathematics. Here is a letter the math department at the University of Minnesota sent to the Minnesota Attorney General opposing a proposed rule change that will make it more difficult for international students to study in the US, and here is a letter sent by the AMS and many other major science organizations in the US advocating that Congress allow international STEM PhDs to stay in the US after graduation (I played no part in writing the latter letter).
