I am a fifth year Ph.D. candidate in the Center for Applied Mathematics at Cornell University. I am advised by Professor Alex Townsend in the Department of Mathematics. My current research interests are in Numerical Linear Algebra, Scientific Computing and Approximation Theory. I will start at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory as a postdoctoral fellow under the supervision of Doctor Sherry Li in the Scalable Solvers Group. Before Cornell, I completed my B.S. in Applied Mathematics and minor in Statistics from University of California, Los Angeles in 2017.

Outside of academia, I love sports and cooking. I also have a cat named Witch, who is always energetic and naughty.
