My research is in probability theory, specifically random matrices and the geometry of high-dimensional random functions.
In Fall 2021, I will be a postdoctoral fellow at MSRI. In Spring 2022, I will be on a Fulbright-Austrian Marshall Plan Foundation grant at the Institute of Science and Technology Austria, under the supervision of László Erdős. Starting Fall 2022, I will be a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University's Center of Mathematical Sciences and Applications, under the supervision of Horng-Tzer Yau.
Previously, I was an undergraduate at The University of Chicago.
