Welcome!



I am a second-year PhD student of mathematics at UCLA. My advisor is Sucharit Sarkar and I am interested in low-dimensional topology; more precisely, I use Heegaard Floer homology and associated invariants to study knots and 3-manifolds. Here is my CV and a list of all courses I have taken as an undergraduate at Cambridge.

I am also a TA in the math department. You can find resources for the courses I am teaching in the Teaching tab.

I have co-authored two published papers so far, both as a result of the summer research projects I have participated in as an undergraduate student. You can read about them in the Research page of my website.
