In the Fall of 2017 I joined the University of Wisconsin at Madison, Department  of Mathematics as a Clare Luce Boothe Assistant Professor.  Previously I was  a  Simons Postdoctoral Fellow at UC Berkeley working with Daniel Tataru. Before coming to Berkeley,  I was a graduate student at UC Davis; my PhD adviser was John K. Hunter.
