About me

I'm a doctoral student at the University of Minnesota advised by Craig Westerland.

I am interested in geometry & topology of 4-manifolds, particularly: Lefschetz fibrations and their moduli, mapping class groups and their connections to geography, arithmetic and physics.

Here are my profiles on Google Scholar and MathSciNet.


  • Math 2263, Multivariable Calculus, Fall 2016
  • I grade for Math 8306: Algebraic Topology taught by Prof. Sasha Voronov.
  • Publications and Preprints

      • Lantern substitution and new symplectic 4-manifolds with \({b_{2}}^{+} = 3\) (with A. Akhmedov)
        Mathematical Research Letters, Vol. 21, No. 1 (2014), P.1-17.
