I am interested in commutative algebra and singularities in algebraic geometry. The problems I am currently working on are closely related to absolute integral closures with applications to all characteristics.

- ``Vanishing of Tors of absolute integral closures in equicharacteristic zero.'' arxiv. To appear in Trans. of Amer. Math. Soc.
- ``Coherence of absolute integral closures'' arxiv. Proc. Amer. Math. Soc. Ser. B 9 (2022), 75-89.
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 am currently teaching MCS 275 (programming tools and file management) and MCS 260 (intro to python) in Fall 2023.

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!)

In Summer 2022 I was a Data Science intern at The Bee Corp. I worked with their Research and Data Scientists to refine or develop new machine learning and image processing algorithms.

During my graduate studies at UIC, I have given expository talks and presented my research at various universtiy seminars and conferences in the United States and in India.
