About Me

I am currently a visiting research associate at Colorado State University, with research interests including matroid theory, discrete geometry, algebraic combinatorics, commutative algebra, and algorithmic applications. I completed my PhD in mathematics at U.C. Berkeley in 2018, advised by Olga Holtz.

I am also interested in open source software for research mathematics, and I contribute to the SageMath open source mathematical software system. I prepared and maintain a SageMath Development Quickstart Guide, so let me know if you have questions on how to get started with contributing code. I am additionally working on a new tableau combinatorics tool, which is currently in early development.

The title bar of this site is a working simulation of the voter model, a probabilistic system giving a very coarse view of the dynamics involved in clustering of opinions in a population. See this page for a more detailed description and a customizable and interactive simulation.
