I am a fifth year Ph.D. Student in mathematics at Boston University. My advisor is Konstantinos Spiliopoulos. My research lies in the areas of stochastic processes, probability, and applied mathematics. I am currently working on topics including: asymptotic problems for interacting particle systems, McKean-Vlasov processes, large deviations, multiscale methods, importance sampling techniques and numerical rare event analysis, metastability analysis of dynamical systems, partial differential equations, optimal transport, and mean field control problems.

I completed a BS in Mathematics at Michigan State University in 2018 with a double major in Japanese.
