I am an NSF postdoctoral fellow and a C.L.E. Moore instructor in the Mathematics department at MIT. In 2020 I completed my PhD at Princeton University under the supervision of Ramon van Handel.

My work is rooted in Probability with branches in Convex Geometry, Combinatorics, and Mathematical Physics.

I use and develop tools from stochastic analysis, spectral theory, and measure transport towards geometric and combinatorial optimal structures (see image), as well as functional inequalities in high dimensions.
