Brief bio:

I am currently a tenure-track assistant professor at Arizona State University. Until 2017, I was a Veblen Research Instructor at Princeton University and the IAS. In 2017, I visited Barcelona Tech for a few months. Before my Princeton years, I was at Brown, where I received my PhD in 2013.
