About Me

I am a second year L.E. Dickson instructor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Chicago. I graduated from University of Maryland, College Park in 2013 under the supervision of Prof. Dmitry Dolgopyat. 

My detailed CV can be found here. 

Research Interests

Currently I am interested in the following fields: Hamiltonian dynamics, Mather theory and weak KAM, hyperbolic dynamics, symplectic topology, optimal transport.

Mathematics Genealogy,





Our scientific findings will be outdated in ten, twenty or fifty years; this is their fate and indeed their “sense”. Every fulfillment in our research raises new questions and wants to be superseded. And this process extends into the infinite… (Max Weber)
