My research explores the role of representation theoretical objects in algebraic geometry. My main work focuses on the study and development of a generalized notion of conformal blocks from an algebraic geometric point of view. I am interested in particular in how these objects relate to moduli spaces of principal bundles and of stable curves. You can learn more about this using these slides, or these ones. For more introductory slides on the use of representation theory in algebraic geometry, see here. You can find my research statement here and my CV here.

I am currently a postdoc in the Math department at the University of Pennsylvania. Starting in January 2023 I will be an assistant professor at the University of Texas at Austin.

I was previously a Hill Assistant professor at Rutgers University and an Instructor at Princeton University.
