I am a CIRGET postdoctoral fellow based at Université du Québec à Montréal, and I teach at McGill University.

My research interests are in differential geometry and the geometry of partial differential equations. I am especially interested in the geometry of manifolds with special holonomy.

I got my PhD in mathematics at Duke University in May 2019 working under the supervision of Robert Bryant. I was a graduate student participant in the Simons Collaboration on Special Holonomy in Geometry, Analysis, and Physics.

I am on the job market this year; you can find a copy of my research statement here.

I organise a CIRGET working group with Michael Albanese.
