I am a Joseph F. Ritt Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Columbia University. I was previously a Simons Fellow, also at Columbia. My research is supported by NSF Grant No. DMS-1701654. My CV is here.

My research interests are in representation theory and integrable probability and applications to statistics and machine learning. My papers are on my research page.

Before Columbia, I received my Ph.D. in mathematics from MIT, advised by Pavel Etingof. I completed my undergraduate studies in mathematics and economics at Harvard, advised by Dennis Gaitsgory, and spent a year studying mathematics at Cambridge supported by the Churchill Scholarship.
