About Me

Hi! Thank you for visiting my home page. I am currently a PhD student at NYU Courant. In Spring 2020 I graduated from the University of Chicago with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics with Honors. My academic interests include probability, partial differential equations, and applications. I also enjoy learning about problems in computer science, economics, and statistics.

In my free time I enjoy backpacking in the Sierras, running, playing Civilization VI, and tinkering with this website. I occasionally write ok poetry, of which this one was published in UChicago's Sliced Bread magazine

This is a simulation of a wave passing through a reflecting boundary that I made for a numerical PDE class. The wave solves the PDE \[a(x)\partial_t^2 u(x,t) - \partial_x (a(x)\partial_x u(x,t)) = 0\] for a function $a$ that models the boundary.
