I am a Van Vleck Visiting Assistant Professor at UW Madison.
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. After getting my PhD I was a CIRGET postdoctoral fellow based at Université du Québec à Montréal from 2019-2021, and I taught at McGill University.
