I am a FWO postdoc researcher at KU Leuven (Mentor Prof. N. Budur). I obtained my Ph.D degree from Purdue University in Aug 2018 (Advisor Prof. D. Arapura). I was a postdoc researcher at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München during 09.2018-09.2019 (Mentor Prof. S. Schreieder)

My research centers around Algebraic Geometry and Hodge theory. Currently, I am working on projects about the generic vanishing theorem and its birational application, the assymptotic Hodge theory, nonabelian Hodge theory, and topology of algebraic variety.
