I am a third year graduate student in the UIC
Department of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science, studying Geometry.

Outside of math, I love to hike, write music, and play soccer. I also serve on the UIC GEO steering committee.

## Teaching

As of Spring 2023, I am a UIC Geometry RTG Fellow, and I'm involved with MURL.

My office hours are Tuesday 3:30-4:30pm on Zoom. The link has been emailed to MURL participants and mentors.

### Past Teaching

- Spring 2022: Math 180 Calculus I
- Fall 2021: Math 220 Differential Equations
- Spring 2021: MCS 275 Programming Tools and File Management
- Fall 2020: MCS 260 Introduction to Computer Science
- Spring 2016: Probability and Statistics (Olin College of Engineering)
- Fall 2016: Introduction to Complex Variables (Olin)

## Research and Pictures

I am interested in hyperbolic geometry and representations into Lie groups. I also enjoy visualizing mathematics using software.

My CV can be found here.

Here are pictures of some ideas that I have been thinking about recently. They were created with Draw IO or with Matplotlib.

- Triangle reflection groups act on H^2 by isometries with fundamental domain a 2-orbifold triangle. Though these groups have torsion, they still admit nice representations into Lie groups.
- In ALE hydrodynamics remap, you can compute the mass flux through a swept region in several equivalent ways.
- The colored squares are integer matrices related to the Bruhat order on A_3, which is the symmetric group on four letters.
