I am a Postdoctoral Associate in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University.

I did my Ph.D. at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign under the supervision of Alexandr Kostochka and Anush Tserunyan.

You can find my CV here (last update: January 22, 2020).

I currently serve as the organizer of the ACO Seminar.


My main areas of research are combinatorics and descriptive set theory. Some particular topics I am interested in include: graph coloring, probabilistic methods, extremal combinatorics, and Borel/measurable combinatorics with applications to ergodic theory.

I currently serve as the organizer of the ACO Seminar. If you would like to give a talk or have questions or suggestions about the seminar, please email me!

This semester (Spring 2020) we are running a reading group on topics related to Szemerédi's theorem. Regular meetings are scheduled to be on Fridays at 4:45–6:00pm in 7201 Wean Hall. Please let me know if you would like to be added to the mailing list!
