I'm a PhD candidate in mathematics at Cornell working with Allen Knutson. I'm interested in geometric representation theory.

Teaching
This semester I am an instructor for MATH 1110: Calculus I.
My office hours are Tuesday 6-7pm, Wednesday and Friday 9-10am, see Canvas for zoom links.
I am a member of the Cornell maths department's Active Learning Initiative team, and have helped to develop some active learning materials for Calculus I.
Seminars
In Spring 2017 and Spring 2019 I co-organised the Cornell maths graduate seminar (Olivetti club).
Mathematics
In 2014, I completed my honours year at the Australian National University under the supervision of Anthony Licata.
A copy of my honours thesis on current algebras, categorification and annular Khovanov homology, can be found here.
Together with Hilary Hunt, Tony Licata and Scott Morrison, I contributed to a note on computing annular Khovanov homology.
I spent the 2015-2016 academic year completing a master's degree at Université Paris 13 and Université Paris 7.
In 2016 I wrote my final dissertation on geometric representations of graded and rational Cherednik algebras under the supervision
of Eric Vasserot.
Outreach
In April 2017, 2018 and 2019 I was one of the workshop leaders at Cornell's Expanding Your Horizons, running activities in topology.
On November 4th and November 11th 2017 I ran the Math Explorers' Club, on groups and symmetry.
In Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 I co-taught mathematics classes through the Cornell Prison Education Program.
In November and December 2018 I taught a course on Knot Theory at Ithaca High School.
