I am an applied mathematician focusing on translating tools from algebraic topology and spectral graph theory to understanding networks and systems. I am currently in my fifth year in the AMCS program at the University of Pennsylvania. I am part of Dr. Robert Ghrist’s applied algebraic topology research group. We hold an informal seminar, the Graduate Research Seminar in (applied) Topology (GRST), and record some of what we learn on our blog Natural Topology.
