I'm a Zassenhaus Assistant Professor (postdoc) at Ohio State University, working with Dr. Vitaly Bergelson. Previously, I was a Ph.D. student at Northwestern University under the supervision of Dr. Bryna Kra.

Research Interests

My research interests lie mainly in ergodic theory and dynamical systems, with an emphasis on applications to combinatorics, number theory, and harmonic analysis. Some of the topics I have or am currently working on are:

  • Ergodic theory and dynamical systems: ergodic Ramsey theory, multiple ergodic averages
  • Additive combinatorics: partition regularity, Bohr sets, sumsets
  • Number theory: patterns in primes, Liouville function, Mobius function
  • Harmonic analysis: interpolation sets (I_0 sets), Sidon sets.
