Before August 2022, I was at the University of Waterloo where I completed a PhD in Combinatorics and Optimization under the supervision of Luke Postle.

I am primarily interested in combinatorics; so far, I've mostly worked in structural graph theory and graph colouring. If you'd like to chat research, please get in touch!

See my CV for a full list of talks I've given. Here's a video of a talk I gave at the University of Waterloo's Graphs and Matroids seminar. It's about the main result in Luke Postle's and my paper Local girth choosability of planar graphs.

Outreach

High School Math Day

[For info on the 2024 edition of HSMD, see here!] Trevor Gunn, Wade Bloomquist, and I co-organized High School Math Day 2023, an expansion of Georgia Tech's High School Math Competition (first held in 1958). Together, we broadened the scope of the event in order to attract more curious students from all backgrounds to come explore their love of mathematics. Some of the changes we implemented included:

A new logic-based competition track focussing on puzzle-based mathematics (in addition to the traditional algebra/geometry track)

Prizes (pop-math books from a local bookstore) for new competitors, as well as for coming up with creative solutions to open-ended problems

Board games, Sudoku, and other interactive math-related activities

HSMD attendees came from 42 schools around Georgia. See here for an article about the event by Renay San Miguel.

Math Circles

While a grad student at the University of Waterloo, I was involved in the Faculty of Maths' Math Circles: an after-school math enrichment program for students in grades six through twelve. I presented to and created worksheets for middle- and high-school students on various topics including graph theory, continued fractions, spatial visualization, and origami. To access materials from past iterations of Math Circles, see here.
