Education

Mathematics Ph.D. 2017, University of California Berkeley, Berkeley, CA, USA

Thesis title: * Applications of toric geometry to geometric representation theory*

Thesis advisor: Professor David Nadler, University of California Berkeley

Honours Bachelor of Science, Mathematics Specialist, University of Toronto, Toronto, ON, Canada

###
Research

My research areas are Geometric and Combinatorial Representation
Theory, Mathematical Physics.

Jornal reference: * Advances in Mathematics 348 (2019) 541-582 *

arXiv:1604.08641, Convex Polytopes for the Central Degeneration of the Affine
Grassmannian.

In the long term, I am also interested in studying the interplay between representation theory and other scientific subjects, especially
quantum information, quantum field theory, and data analysis.
