Curriculum Vitae


I am an NSF postdoctoral fellow working in the analysis group at MIT. My primary research area is harmonic analysis, and I am especially interested in studying detailed properties of the Fourier transform. I grew up in Los Angeles, CA and spent 8 years in Berkeley as an undergraduate and PhD student (under my advisor, Mike Christ). At MIT, I have focused on decoupling theory (studying properties of functions with specialized Fourier support, like on a parabola) with Larry Guth.


Sharp superlevel set estimates for small cap decouplings of the parabola (with L. Guth and Y. Fu, arxiv) 2021.

Decoupling inequalities for short generalized Dirichlet sequences (with L. Guth and Y. Fu, arxiv) 2021.

Improved decoupling for the parabola (with L. Guth and H. Wang, arxiv) 2020, to appear in JEMS.

Regularized Brascamp-Lieb inequalities and an application 2019, to appear in Quart. J. Math.

Special cases of power decay in multilinear oscillatory integrals (with D. Dong and D. Villano), 2019, to appear in Applicable Analysis.
