I am a mathematics PhD student at Duke University with interests in low-dimensional topology, geometric group theory, mathematical physics, and artificial intelligence problems. However, I also unofficially dabble in mathematical neuroscience and genetics, engineering control problems, and operations management theory. In my undergrad, I did an honors thesis in low-dimensional topology studying the solvability of decision problems related to the fundamental groups of 2-stratifolds. Currently, I also work with scientists at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the Georgia Institute of Technology to develop new mathematical methods for analyzing neutron scattering data.
