My area of research is Algebraic Geometry. I am mainly interested in the Birational Geometry of algebraic varieties, namely, the Minimal Model Program (MMP) and the singularities of the MMP in characteristic 0 and p. I am also interested in the applications of MMP in other related fields, such as, moduli of varieties of higher dimensions, rational connectedness, F-singularities, etc.


 I am currently an Assistant Adjunct Professor at the Department of Mathematics, University of California, Los Angeles.
