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.

**NEW!** On the octopus inequality and the moving particle lemma in the exclusion process. [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.
