I'm a PhD student in the Geometric Computing Lab at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences. My advisor is Denis Zorin. I earned a B.S. in Mathematics from the University at Buffalo, SUNY and completed my senior thesis with William W. Menasco. I'm interested in fast algorithms to solve problems in applied math, physics, geometry, topology and computational science in general.
