# About Me

I am a postdoc at the Max Planck Institute for mathematics in Leipzig, working in the math software group lead by Michael Joswig. In August 2023, I will join the University of Michigan as a postdoc, working with David Speyer.

I received my Ph.D. from Brown University under the supervision of Melody Chan. My research interests include tropical geometry, combinatorial and computational algebraic geometry, and broadly combinatorics. I did my undergraduate studies at Smith College.

I use she/her/hers pronouns.

Here is my CV.
