I am currently the Busemann Assistant Professor (NTT) in the USC Mathematics Department. Prior to this, I was a graduate student at Duke University, where my advisor was Lenny Ng.

My research interests lie in categorification, low-dimensional topology, and representation theory. More specifically, I work on Khovanov-Rozansky homology, KLR algebras and categorified quantum groups, quantum invariants of links and 3-manifolds, skein modules, and related structures.

My work is supported by the NSA and the Simons foundation.
