About

Picture

I am a fifth year graduate student at the University of Utah studying commutative algebra. My advisor is Srikanth Iyengar. I will graduate in May 2020 and start a post-doc position at the University Bielefeld, Germany, in the representation theory group. I obtained a Bachelor in Mathematics in 2014 and a Bachelor in Physics in 2015 from the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Germany.
I am interested in derived categories.

Here is my CV.
