About Me
I am a graduate student at the University of Rochester. My advisor is Alex Iosevich. You can find my CV here.
Research
My research interests lie primarily in geometric measure theory and geometric combinatorics. I am particularly interested in problems related to the Erdos and Falconer distance problems and generalizations to point configurations. For a more detailed description, see my research statement.
