Hello! I’m a fourth year graduate student at the University of Pennsylvania in the applied mathematics and computational science program (AMCS) where I’m advised by Robert Ghrist. I’m interested in the applications of topology and category theory, in particular to study cellular sheaves. I graduated from Boston University in 2019 with a B.A. in Mathematics.

Over the summer of 2023, I was a part of NASA’s SCaN Internship Project . Mentored by Dr. Alan Hylton at Goddard Space Flight Center, I explored path finding formalisms for time-varying graphs using network sheaves.
