I am a math postdoc at CIRGET in Montréal supervised by Liam Watson and Steve Boyer. My research lies in low-dimensional topology and gauge theory, specifically Heegaard Floer homology and its applications to 3-manifolds, exotic structures on 4-manifolds, and knots. I received my PhD in May 2017 from Brandeis University where my advisor was Danny Ruberman.

Here is my CV (updated Jan 2019).
