About Me

About me: In August 2022 I became a CRM-ISM Postdoctoral Fellow in Montreal and I am registered at McGill University. I am working under the supervision of Alina Stancu (Concordia University), Galia Dafni (Concordia University), Jérôme Vétois (McGill University), Pengfei Guan (McGill University). This is a two year position.

I graduated in May 2022 with a PhD in mathematics at the University of Connecticut under the supervision of Prof. Guozhen Lu. My thesis was on sharp geometric inequalities on rank one symmetric spaces (the hyperbolic spaces) and their boundaries (the Heisenberg groups).

I am from a small harbor town in Washington state and I always welcome any mathematical discussions (email correspondence or otherwise).

Research Interests: Analysis on flat and curved geometries (e.g., hyperbolic spaces) and noncommutative groups (e.g., the Heisenberg group) using Fourier analysis, geometric analysis and PDE methods.
Current projects include problems in harmonic analysis, geometric flows, PDEs and sharp geometric inequalities.
