I am a third-year graduate student in the University of Washington's math department, studying algebraic combinatorics. My current work concerns combinatorial Hopf algebras, in particular symmetric functions and quasisymmetric functions, as well as permutation statistics. My advisor is Ricky Liu.

I was an undergraduate at MIT, class of 2021, obtaining a bachelor's degree in mathematics with a minor in computer science, where I lived at Next House.

I also love puzzles and puzzlehunts. I participate in the MIT Mystery Hunt on team NES. I also helped develop Noq, a website housing a suite of solvers for many genres of Nikoli-style logic puzzles.
