About me

I am a third-year graduate student at the University of Utah. My research interests are DG homological algebra and tight closure theory. My advisors are Srikanth Iyengar and Anurag Singh.

I'm currently organizing BIKES, the student Commutative Algebra Seminar at the U.

I am from Vietnam and obtained my Bachelor in Mathematics at the University of Science, Vietnam National Univerisity, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, before moving to Salt Lake City. Here is a little bit about me: I can speak Vietnamese fluently. "I make jokes when I'm uncomfortable". I have been in 4 states of America. I am an avid movie-goers and a big fan of sitcoms and would love to talk about them.

Here is my CV, updated November 2018.
