I am an assistant professor at UCLA. I am part of the Algebra Group and the Geometry Group at UCLA.

From Fall 2019 to Spring 2022, I was an instructor in Mathematics at Princeton University, under the mentorship of János Kollár. In May 2019, I finished my Ph.D in Mathematics at the University of Utah, under the advice of Christopher Hacon.

Starting Winter 2024, I am running the Birational Geometry Seminar 2024. The BGS 2023 is the previous version of this seminar. From Spring 2021 to Fall 2022, I ran a Learning Seminar on the Minimal Model Program.
