Hello! I am a graduate student at MIT since Fall 2020, currently in my fourth year. I am fortunate to be advised by Prof. Paul Seidel. Previously I was an undergraduate at Stanford University, supervised by Prof. Yakov Eliashberg.

My research interests lie in symplectic topology and its relationship to nearby fields, including geometric representation theory and noncommutative geometry.

Starting September, I will be a Szegö assistant professor at Stanford University.

My Curriculum Vitae. (Last Update: Dec 2023)


Quantum Steenrod operations of symplectic resolutions, preprint. (arXiv)

Flat endomorphisms of mod p equivariant quantum connections from quantum Steenrod operations, submitted. (arXiv)

Double ramification contact homology, undergraduate honors thesis.


In Winter (IAP) 2024, I am managing course and leading recitations for 18.095: Mathematics Lecture Series.

In Fall 2023, I led recitations for 18.02: Multivariate Differential and Integral Calculus.

In Spring 2022, I led recitations for 18.02: Multivariate Differential and Integral Calculus.

In 2022, I served as a teaching assistant for the second iteration of the Youtube 16-lecture minicourse A Math Class for Everyone(직장인과 문과생을 위한 수학교실) led by Dr. Gunhee Cho, targeted towards general audience speaking Korean language.

Seminars and Workshops

I am co-organizing Kylerec 2024 on recent developments in Gromov--Witten theory. Applications are open!

In Summer 2023, I co-organized Kylerec 2023. The topic was applications of mirror symmetry to symplectomorphisms.

In Summer 2022, I co-organized Kylerec 2022. The topic was quantitative symplectic geometry.

In Spring 2024, I am co-organizing a Reading seminar on crystalline cohomology and Gauss--Manin connections with Zihong Chen and Yonghwan Kim.

In Spring 2022, I co-organized a Reading group on Ganatra--Pardon--Shende I, II with Zihong Chen.
