I just finished my PhD with the department of mathematics at Florida State University under the supervision of Paolo Aluffi. In the fall I begin a post-doc at the Institute for Mathematical Research at the University of Hong Kong. In my research I have investigated the hypothetical extra dimensions of space-time purported by string theory. In particular, I have been studying elliptic fibrations from the perspective of F-theory, a regime of string theory which uses elliptically fibered Calabi-Yau manifolds for compactifications of string vacua. I also enjoy music and cooking.

"And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh."--Ecclesiastes 12:12
"One could perhaps describe the situation by saying that God is a mathematician of the highest order, and that He used very advanced mathematics in constructing the universe."--Paul Dirac
