I am a graduate student in applied
mathematics at Harvard University. In my research, I apply techniques from probability theory to study the fundamental, mathematical principles of evolution. I focus on macroscopic evolutionary timescales and want to understand how evolution efficiently finds novel functionality. I have also studied the spectra of random matrices. Currently, I work with Martin Nowak
and Horng-Tzer Yau. More information

I have served as a teaching fellow for undergraduate and graduate
courses in mathematics and computer science. I received the
Harvard University Certificate of Distinction in Teaching in Spring 2012, Spring 2015, and Fall 2016. At the
Harvard Allston Education Portal, I mentored several students in mathematics, and I am
currently a non-residential tutor in mathematics for Harvard's
As an undergraduate at Harvard, I concentrated in mathematics
and wrote my undergraduate thesis on sparse covariance matrices
under the supervision of Horng-Tzer Yau.
