About Me

Starting Sept. 2021, I will be a Senior Postdoctoral Fellow at Perimeter Institute.

Before that I was an NSF Postdoctoral Fellow / Instructor in the Department of Mathematics at MIT from 2018-2021, mentored by Roman Bezrukavnikov.

Before MIT I was a member at the Institute for Advanced Study in 2017-2018.

I received my Ph.D. in mathematics from UChicago, advised by Vladimir Drinfeld. I received my undergraduate degree in mathematics from Harvard, advised by Dennis Gaitsgory, and spent a year studying maths at Cambridge supported by the Churchill Scholarship.

Research Interests

My current research focuses on how geometric representation theory can provide new insights to number theory and mathematical physics. I am especially interested in the relative and geometric Langlands programs, automorphic forms and special values of L-functions.
