I am a fifth year graduate student in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Chicago. My advisor is Professor Victor Ginzburg. I am interested in geometric representation theory and related questions in algebra, geometry and combinatorics.

In 2014-2018 I will be an NSF postdoc/Ritt Assistant Professor at Columbia University, where my NSF sponsoring scientist will be Professor Andrei Okounkov. In 2015-2016 I will be on leave from the NSF postdoc and will be doing a one-year postdoc in Bonn, Germany, working as a part the research group of Professor Catharina Stroppel.### Contact Information

I did my undergraduate studies in mathematics at MIT.

When I was in high school, I participated in the IMO '03 (in Japan) and '04 (in Greece).

I am married to Ilya Gekhtman.

In my free time, I enjoy reading. Some of my favorite books are the Moomin
books by Tove Jansson, the science fiction novel *Monday Starts on Saturday* by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky,
and the Corfu trilogy by Gerald Durrell.
