I am excited to be starting at the Rényi Institute this fall.
Previously, I was a postdoc researcher at Universität Innsbruck advised by Ecaterina SavaHuss.
I received my Ph.D. in mathematics from Cornell University, under the supervision of Laurent SaloffCoste.
I was also fortunate to have Lionel Levine and Éva Tardos on my committee.
I completed my B.A. in mathematics at Swarthmore College and M.S. in computer science at Cornell University.
I am interested in problems in discrete probability, especially how random processes are influenced by the geometry of the space on which they take place.
Most recently, I have been thinking about a variety of random walks, analyzing them using heat kernel estimates and expansion properities, as well as mass aggregation models and hidden Markov models.

In Fall 2019, I taught a math seminar at Ithaca High School on the probabilistic method. In Fall 2018, I was an instructor for Math 1110: Calculus I. I have also been a teaching assistant for Math 2940: Linear Algebra for Engineers and Math 2240: Theoretical Linear Algebra and Calculus.
