I am a
**J. L. Doob Research Assistant
Professor** at the mathematics department
at UIUC working with Alexander
Yong.
In the fall 2016 I was a **Postdoctoral Fellow** for the
thematic program on Combinatorial Algebraic
Geometry at The Fields Institute for the
fall semester. In the summer 2015 I was an **Einstein
Postdoc** at TU Berlin working with Bernd
Sturmfels. I finished my Ph.D. at
**Cornell University** in May 2015 under
the supervision of Allen
Knutson.

I am interested in the
interplay between Combinatorics and
Algebraic Geometry.

I am a coorganizer of
the Algebra-Geometry-Combinatorics
Seminar and the Doob
Colloquium
at UIUC.
