About Me

Since July 2019, I am an Instructor at Brandeis University. With Dmitry Kleinbock, I co-organize the Dynamics and Number Theory seminar. Click here for the seminar webpage.

I received my Ph.D. in Mathematics from Yale University in 2019. I am fortunate to have had Professors Gregory Margulis (Yale University) and Emmanuel Breuillard (University of Cambridge) as advisers.

I am primarily interested in Lie groups, their discrete subgroups, algebraic groups, and arithmetic groups; I enjoy learning about their connections to pretty much any other topic (click here for more details).

Previously, I received an M.S. in Computational & Mathematical Engineering at Stanford University (with a short stint in the Mechanical Engineering Department), focusing mostly on probability theory. Even earlier, I received an M.S. in Aerospace Engineering (with a focus on Plasma Physics) and a Diplôme d’Ingénieur at Ecole Centrale Paris, where I studied Plasma Assisted Combustion.

Current Teaching

Fall 2019, I am teaching Introduction to Combinatorics (Math 39A). Click here for the course webpage.

Books and Translations

I enjoy translating and giving a new breath of life to old French mathematics classics by translating them into English. Click here for more information.
