I am an undergraduate student in the department of mathematics at the University of Toronto.

- I am currently working on investigating the relationship between quiver flag varieties and Mirkovic-Vilonen cycles. This work is with Prof. Joel Kamnitzer under an NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Award.
- Last summer, I illustrated the prime and torus decomposition of 3-manifolds using computer graphics and animation. The project can be found here. This work was under the supervision of Prof. Dror Bar-Natan with funding from an NSERC USRA.

- In June 2018, I attended an undergraduate program on geometric representation theory and symplectic varieties at Notre Dame University.
- In 2016, 2017, and 2018, I attended the Canadian Undergraduate Mathematics Conference and gave talks on nested recursions, 3-manifold topology, and quiver flag varieties (upcoming) respectively.
- In October 2016, I spoke at Crime and Punishment at 150, a conference on Russian literature at the University of British Columbia. I gave a talk on Dostoevsky's representation of the city of St. Petersburg in
*Crime and Punishment*.

- In 2017-2018, I was a teaching assistant for MAT137 (Calculus!) at the University of Toronto.
- In 2016-2017, I was a teaching assistant for MAT135/MAT136 at the University of Toronto.
