I'm a postdoc at UC Irvine, working in geometric analysis and supervised by Rick Schoen. Before coming to UCI I got my PhD at Brown University, under Nicos Kapouleas. I'm particularly interested in minimal surfaces (especially gluing constructions) and general relativity (especially quasilocal mass).

Teaching and office hours

I'm currently teaching Math 2A, UCI's first quarter of calculus.

Fall quarter office hours:
MWF 1-1:50 in RH 510W,
W 3-4pm in RH 510W,
MF 3-4pm in DBH 1427 (for Math 2A only),
and by appointment
