Curriculum vitae (pdf) | Research statement (pdf) | Teaching statement (pdf)

Starting July 2016 I will be moving to Colgate University as an assistant professor of mathematics.

Research interests: Probability, Analysis and Mathematical Physics on rough spaces or metric measure spaces (such as fractals).

All of my research papers can be found on the arXiv.

Teaching (Spring '16): MATH 3150 - Analysis I (Section 001), and MATH 3160 - Probability (Section 007) (also taught in Fall '13, AY '14~'15, Fall '15). Also ran an independent study course on spectral graph theory.

Past Teaching: MATH 2110 - Multivariable Calculus (Section 005) (Spring '14), and MATH 3170 - Elementary Stochastic Processes (Spring '14), and MATH 5160 - Probability Theory & Stochastic Processes I (Fall '15).

Report on Honors Probability at UConn

My handcrafted creations of probability problems

UConn Special Semester in Nonsmooth Analysis, Fall 2015

Since Spring 2015, Matthew Badger and I have co-organized the UConn Analysis & Probability Seminar, Fridays 3:15-4:15p.

In Summer 2015, I was one of the research mentors for the UConn math REU program, working mainly with the fractals group and the stochastic control group. I also organized the summer S.I.G.M.A. seminar (Fridays 12:15p~1:15p).

On July 28, 2015, Luke Rogers and I co-organized the 3rd Northeast Mathematics Undergraduate Research Mini-Symposium.

Here is a recent expository talk about random walks and electrical networks, with some newly inspired pieces at the end.

I had my 15 minutes of fame after giving this final exam problem to my probability students.

Recreation: I play the piano. You can find some of my recordings/covers on SoundCloud.
