Hi there! I am a second year math graduate student at University of Minnesota working with Vic Reiner. Generally, I am interested in combinatorial commutative algebra and algebraic combinatorics. So far, I have enjoy working with matroids, fans, and Chow rings.
In the 2022-2023 academic year, I am organizing the Student Combinatorics & Algebra Seminar at UMN along with Elise Catania, Tara Gomes, and Kaelyn Willingham. If you would like to give an in-person talk at our seminar, shoot me an email!
Additionally, I am the Director of Communications (Poster Master General) for Gender Minorities in Mathematics at UMN.
I received my masters and bachelors degrees from San Francisco State University. My MA thesis was on matroids, their Chow rings and Bergman fans and was advised by Dusty Ross.

I firmly believe in and try my best to uphold the following axioms, laid out by Federico Ardila:
Mathematical talent is distributed equally among different groups, irrespective of geographic, demographic, and economic boundaries.
Everyone can have joyful, meaningful, and empowering mathematical experiences.
Mathematics is a powerful, malleable tool that can be shaped and used differently by various communities to serve their needs.
Every student deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.
I am passionate about making mathematics a more welcoming space for students historically underrepresented in academia.
