Research |

- Since Fall 2017, I have been working with Artem Chernikov on questions related to this paper.
- In the summer of 2017, I worked with Martino Lupini on a Caltech SURF project. We have shown that a certain ring with metric, constructed by von Neumann as a limit of matrix rings endowed with a rank metric, is the metric Fraı̈ssé limit of said matrix rings, and given this, we have shown a few more facts about this structure, related to the Kechris-Pestov-Todorcevic correspondence. A preprint of this paper is available here.
- In the summer of 2016, I worked with Alexander Kechris on a project in Descriptive Set Theory.

Teaching |

- I work with the Los Angeles Math Circle, and sometimes make the handouts we use. Here are pdfs for handouts on electrical circuits and random walks (and challenge problems) and the Cantor Set.

- Caltech Harvey Mudd Math Competition: a one-day, on-site math competition for high school students that I've helped organize.

- Dabney Pumpkin Drop: every Halloween, residents of Caltech's Dabney Hovse freeze pumpkins in liquid nitrogen and drop them off the tallest building on campus, Millikan Library. I was one of the pumpkin-droppers for several years, and was interviewed for this video.
