I am a Zelevinsky Research Instructor at Northeastern University. I am currently on the job market.

My research focuses on questions in geometric and combinatorial representation theory, quantum algebra, knot theory and low-dimensional topology.

I completed my PhD at the University of Toronto in 2016, where my advisors were Dror Bar-Natan and Joel Kamnitzer. You can have a look at my CV for some more information.

Some Mathematica code I have worked on is available at the Knot Atlas.
