Hello! I am a PhD Student in the Department of Mathematics at Boston University. I completed my B.A. in mathematics at the University of Chicago. My advisor is Jennifer Balakrishnan.
My work is supported by a Clare Boothe Luce Fellowship and an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.

I am broadly interested in number theory and algebraic geometry. More specifically, I am interested in rational points and explicit methods in arithmetic geometry.
Here are slides from my talk at Brown AMS Graduate Student Conference about my recent work on computing rational points on a database of genus 3 curves with small Mordell-Weil rank using Chabauty-Coleman methods. This is joint work with María-Inés de Frutos Fernandes and Travis Morrison.
