Chicago Lakefront, Thanksgiving 2019

I am a fourth year Ph.D. student at UIC. My advisor is Kevin Tucker.

Previously, I was an undergraduate at CMI and graduated in 2018 with a B.Sc (Hons) in Mathematics and Computer Science.

In Summer 2022 I am a Data Science intern at The Bee Corp . I work with their Research and Data Scientists to refine or develop new machine learning and image processing algorithms. In Spring 2023 I expect to be on the academic job market seeking a postdoctoral position.

I am interested in commutative algebra. The problems I am currently working on are closely related to (if not, the) absolute integral closures and has applications to the study of singularities in all characteristics.

I presented a poster on this at mini-AGNTS 2021 and KUMUNU 2022. I gave a 10-minute beamer talk on this at the FRG workshop in Seattle.

Erratum: there is a mistake in the paper which affects none of the main (or new) results.

I endorse Federico Ardila's axioms. In addition I try to ensure that the agency in my classrooms rests with the students.

I am not teaching in Summer 2022.

I was a counselor at the Ross-Asia Mathematics program in Huangshan, Anhui, China, in the summers of 2017 and 2018. I led discussion sessions.

I have taught at Math Circles of Chicago (donate!)

During my graduate studies at UIC, I have given talks at Graduate Algebraic Geometry Seminar.

I have given (expository) talks at IISER Pune.

In winter 2020, I also gave a talk at (student seminar) TIFR.
