I am currently a Chowla Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Pennsylvania State University. Previously, I was a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Mathematics at the University of British Columbia, working with prof. Lior Silberman and prof. Pablo Shmerkin. Before that, I was a Ph.D. student in the Department of Mathematics at ETH Zurich, working under the supervision of prof. Manfred Einsiedler.

My main research area is dynamical systems, with connections to geometry, number theory and probability theory. For a more detailed description, see the Research page.
