I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Southern California.

From 2012-2016 I was first a Szegö Assistant Professor and then an NSF postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University. I was a member at the IAS in Fall 2016. I completed my Ph.D. in 2012 at MIT (including two years on exchange at U.C. Berkeley), working with Denis Auroux.

More details can be found in my CV (last updated 8/2016).


I'm interested in symplectic topology. Much of my recent work concerns structural aspects of Fukaya categories and Floer theory, using methods of homological algebra and non-commutative geometry, with applications to mirror symmetry and string topology. I gratefully acknowledge the support of the National Science Foundation through Award DMS-1907635.
