A little about me

I am an RTG Assistant Adjunct Professor and a UC Presidential Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of California, Los Angeles under the supervision of Professor Sorin Popa . For more information on the Presidential Postdoctoral Fellowship Program, pelase follow this link.

I completed my PhD in mathematics at the University of Iowa under the guidance of Professor Ionut Chifan. My research is in the classification of type II1 factors arising from groups by way of Popa's deformation/rigidity theory.

I previously attended Pasadena City College and transferred to Cal Poly Pomona where I completed my BS and MS in Mathematics in 2012 under the mentorship of Professors John Rock and Robin Wilson.
