I'm a fourth year graduate student at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL. Before this I was an undergraduate at Columbia University in New York City, NY. You can find my CV here.

When I'm not thinking about math I like to read.
This quarter we are running a symplectic geometry seminar.
Here is my guide to live\(\TeX\)ing.

research interests

Broadly speaking, I'm interested in mathematical physics, the geometry and topology related to quantum field theories. At the moment I'm thinking about differential forms and graded geometry.
My advisor is Ezra Getzler.
