I'm a fifth year graduate student working with Paul Balmer. My work during my degree has focused on studying the extent to which higher-categorical phenomena can be detected in ordinary category theory.
Teaching
I have been TA for the entire lower-division curriculum at UCLA, as well as our transitions to proofs course, the honors multivariable calculus sequence, upper-division linear algebra, real analysis, topology, and mathematical modeling, and graduate algebraic topology. I also teach for Art of Problem Solving and am active on Math Stack Exchange.
