I am currently an NSF Postdoctoral Fellow and a Dickson Instructor at the University of Chicago. I got my PhD from MIT in 2017, my thesis was titled "Deligne Categories and Representation Stability in Positive Characteristic", and my PhD advisor was Pavel Etingof. I am interested in stability phenomena in representation theory, tensor categories in positive characteristic, and problems in algebraic combinatorics arising from representation theory. The picture is of me teaching a mini-course on non-euclidean geometry to high school students at MathILy in 2014.
