I'm an undergraduate student at Columbia University (SEAS 2018) studying Computer Science and Applied Mathematics. I'm a member of the Columbia Computer Graphics Group (C2G2), working in geometry processing and physically based simulation. I am currently applying to graduate school.

## Research

I initially began working on the tangling and jamming of objects, particularly curves in space. In applications, interesting curves unfortunately do not usually form closed loops, so it's hard to take advantage of classical knot-theory invariants and algebraic structure to investigate them. Nevertheless, there exist mathematical tools to tackle the problem outside of the usual ones, like gradient descent.Currently, I'm trying to simulate fracture with geometry in mind.

## Notes

Here are some notes left over from some subjects I've enjoyed.**Point-Set Topology**
