About me:

I'm a Visiting Assistant Professor in algebraic geometry at the University of Kansas. My mentor at KU is Prof. Bangere Purnaprajna. Starting in September, I will be a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Princeton University. I got my PhD at the University of California, San Diego under the supervision of Prof. James McKernan. Here is my CV.

I am currently co-organizing the Geometry seminar at the University of Kansas.
