I am an assistant professor (RTPC) of mathematics at the University of Southern California. Currently, I am on leave visiting the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Bonn. I received my PhD from Princeton University in 2018, and I have previously worked on (motivic) stable homotopy theory, integration of mixed sheaves and connections to the birational geometry of Calabi-Yau varieties, analytic number theory with applications to Ramanujan graphs, and linear programming concerning sphere packings. My current interests are related to spectral gaps of hyperbolic manifolds.
