Second-year graduate student at Stanford University. My interests originate from differential geometry. My advisors are Robert Bryant and Rick Schoen.

My favorite aspects of math are those which appear to generalize calculus. I like the algebraic and analytic machinery of geometry and topology.

I learn best from concrete examples, explicit calculations, and relating modern ideas to their classical counterparts.

Currently learning about:

  • Exterior differential systems
  • Riemannian manifolds with special holonomy
  • Calibrated geometries
