### About Me

I am a fifth year Ph.D. student in Mathematics at the University of Pennsylvania. **I am on the job market this fall.** My advisor is David Harbater. Before the University of Pennsylvania, I was an undergraduate at the Pennsylvania State University, and a member of the Millennium Scholars Program. I am interested in algebraic number theory, and algebraic and arithmetic geometry, particularly quadratic forms, local-global principles, and algebraic groups.

I firmly believe Federico Ardila’s basic axioms:

**Axiom 1. **Mathematical talent is distributed equally among different groups, irrespective of geographic, demographic, and economic boundaries.

**Axiom 2. **Everyone can have joyful, meaningful, and empowering mathematical experiences.

**Axiom 3. **Mathematics is a powerful, malleable tool that can be shaped and used differently by various communities to serve their needs.

**Axiom 4.** Every student deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.
