I am a second-year Ph.D. student in mathematics at MIT, advised by Bjorn Poonen. I expect to graduate in June 2019. My CV is here.

My research interests are in arithmetic geometry. I have a particular fondness for concrete problems like counting points over finite fields. My papers are on my research page.

I am supported by the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.

Before MIT, I studied mathematics at Cambridge supported by the Churchill Scholarship. I completed my undergraduate studies in mathematics and computer science at the University of Michigan supported by the Sidney J. and Irene Shipman Scholarship.
