I am currently a PhD student in the Department of Mathematics at ETH Zürich under the guidance of Benny Sudakov. Previously, I received a masters degree from New York University and a bachelors degree from Carnegie Mellon University. ## Check out my research featured in Quanta magazine - A New Path to Equal-Angle LinesCurriculum Vitae: CV |
