I am currently a Gibbs Assistant Professor at Yale. Previously I was a member at the IAS, and a graduate student at Harvard where my advisor was Mark Kisin.

I am interested in arithmetic geometry and representation theory, in particular on problems related to the mod p geometry of Shimura varieties.

Notes/Expository writings

Modularity Lifting Theorems Notes from Spring 2014 course at MIT taught by Sug Woo Shin.

Model categories and the cotangent complex My minor thesis. It's an exposition of the construction of the cotangent complex and some applications to characterizing complete intersections and smooth morphisms of schemes.

Notes from course on Complex Multiplication of elliptic curves that I taught with Yihang Zhu at Harvard in Fall 2014.
