I am a postdoc at the University of Colorado Boulder under Katherine E. Stange.
I received my PhD in 2021 at McGill University under the supervision of Henri Darmon. My PhD studies were supported by a Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship.
I was a Blyth Scholar during my undergraduate at Trinity College, Cambridge, where I received a BA(hons), MMath, and MA.
In high school I represented Canada at the 2011 and 2012 International Mathematical Olympiad, receiving two silver medals. I have returned to the IMO as Observer B (2015), Leader (2017, 2018), and Observer A (2019). Since September 2019 I have been chair of the Canadian IMO Committee.
I am interested in algebraic number theory, with an emphasis on computational number theory and connections between number theory and geometry/topology. I do most of my computations in PARI/GP, and some of my code can be found on my Github.
