PhD. Candidate
Department of Mathematics

I am a fourth year PhD. candidate in mathematics at Purdue University. My work is in operator algebras and my advisor is Thomas Sinclair. Originally I am from the Silicon Valley in California and obtained my Bachelor of Arts in mathematics from San Jose State University. I am the organizer for the Junior Operator Algebras Seminar. We meet on Thursdays at 2:30pm in REC 117. This is an informal seminar where students of the field may present and talk about their work with other students. If you have an interest in attending then please email me.

When I am not working on mathematics I enjoy playing chess and reading. In particular, my favorite topics to read about include science, history, and philosophy.
Some poems and speeches.
