I am a second-year PhD student at Penn. My interest lies in algebraic geometry, in particular, algebraic curves. My advisor is Angela Gibney. I am currently working on moduli of curves by studying the sheaf of coinvariants and conformal blocks arising from the representation theory of vertex operator algebras.
