I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Pittsburgh.

My research interests are in number theory. Each of my research projects has applied tools from representation theory, algebraic geometry, and/or homotopical algebra. I especially like to think about moduli spaces and deformation theory of objects of interest in number theory, such as Galois representations and modular forms. I am also very interested in teaching and promoting undergraduate research.

At Pitt I am part of the Algebra, Combinatorics, and Geometry group and attend the group's seminar.
