Hi! I am currently an NSF Postdoctoral Fellow at Stanford University. I am primarily interested in low-dimensional topology, Floer homology, and gauge theory. Most of my research involves Heegaard Floer theory and its applications to questions about cobordism and/or concordance. I have also done some work involving corks and related 3- and 4-dimensional problems, as well as instanton Floer homology. Recently I have become interested in symmetries of knots and Khovanov homology.

My postdoctoral advisor is Ciprian Manolescu. I was previously an NSF Postdoctoral Fellow at MIT, working under Tomasz Mrowka. I received my PhD in 2019 from Princeton under the direction of Zoltán Szabó.
