Office: MA 118


I am a lecturer in the mathematics department at Ohio State University. I was a postdoc at University of Connecticut last year, an NSF postdoc at University of Minnesota from 2013 to 2016 and a postdoc during the 2012-2013 year at MSRI and UC Berkeley. I completed my PhD in 2012 at University of Michigan under the supervision of Sergey Fomin.

I have a cv and a research statement.


In Fall 2017 I am teaching Math 2173: Engineering Mathematics B.


My interests lie in the field of algebraic combinatorics, and more specifically, cluster algebras. I would like to better understand how cluster algebras relate to projective geometry and discrete integrable systems.

    I play bridge in my free time. An article about my team back in Michigan was written here (thanks to Jin for supplying the file).
