Biography
I am a recent graduate of the doctoral program in mathematics at Columbia University. My advisor was Johan de Jong and my thesis is titled Del Pezzo surfaces with irregularity and intersection numbers on quotients in geometric invariant theory. I studied mathematics at the University of Michigan for my undergraduate degree. There I worked under the guidance of Jeffrey C. Lagarias on understanding the nature of the level sets of Takagi's fractal curve.
My current main research interests include equivariant intersection theory and Kodairatype nonvanishing in finite characteristic.
