I'm a second-year undergraduate at Carnegie Mellon University studying mathematics and pursuing a minor in computer science. I graduated from Seminole High School in Sanford, Florida (not the one in Seminole, Florida or Seminole, Texas) from the International Baccalaureate program. I participated in various math competitions as a high school student, to which I attribute my interest in mathematics. My experiences as a contestant also inspired me to help start the Carnegie Mellon Informatics and Mathematics Competition (CMIMC
) which was inaugurated in April 2016.
My primary interest within mathematics is currently number theory. I was fortunate enough to work with Professor Steven Miller from Williams College during the Spring Term of 2016 in extending some of his results on second moments of Fourier coefficients of families of L-functions. I'm also looking forward to thinking about some open problems in combinatorics or theoretical computer science (although it seems to me as though the line between these fields can be quite faint).
Outside of academics I enjoy singing, which is probably the least esoteric hobby I have. I also enjoy origami, speedcubing, penspinning all roughly equally. If you also enjoy any of these, I'd love to talk with you about them!
