I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Mathematics at Northwestern University. My advisor is Eric Zaslow. Here is my CV. My research interests are Gromov-Witten Invariants, Mirror Symmetry, Algebraic Geometry, Mathematical Physics. Here's a link to the schedule of the Northwestern Geometry/Physics Seminar. |

Quantum Theta Functions from Open Mirror Symmetry (joint with Tim Graefnitz, Helge Ruddat, and Eric Zaslow), in progress. Higher genus local Gromov-Witten invariants via degeneration of P1-bundle, in progress. |
