I’m a third year PhD student in the theory group at the University of Toronto, where I’m fortunate to be supervised by Dr. Allan Borodin. Previously, I obtained a master’s degree in mathematics from McGill University under the supervision of Dr. Dmitry Jakobson, and before that, I completed my undergraduate studies at Dalhousie University.

I’m broadly interested in topics which intersect between probabilistic combinatorics and algorithm design. This includes work I’ve done on random graphs and hypergraphs, as well as on discrete time stochastic processes. I also work on topics in combinatorial optimization in the context of online algorithms and decision making under uncertainty. Most recently, I’ve been working on a stochastic probing variant of the classical maximum matching problem.
