I am currently a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Mathematics Department at the University of California, Riverside. I was previously a Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Iowa. I received my Ph.D. from UC Berkeley in 2013 under the supervision of Vaughan Jones.

Research Interests: von Neumann algebras, C*-algebras, free probability, subfactors, random matrices

Here is my CV.
