About Me

I am a Postdoctoral Teacher-Scholar in the Department of Mathematics at Wake Forest University. I am teaching Calculus I in the Fall semester. My research is in dynamical systems and ergodic theory; specifically I study nonuniform and singular hyperbolic dynamics, thermodynamic formalism, and smooth ergodic theory.

Prior to working at Wake, I was a teaching fellow at Coventry University in the United Kingdom. Before that, I was a researcher in the mathematics section of the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics. In addition to being a researcher at ICTP, I was also a tutor in both the ICTP mathematics diploma program and the International Mathematics Master at COMSATS, Lahore, Pakistan. In the latter, I was also the coordinator for the IMM course in Complex Analysis in the Fall of 2021.

In the Spring of 2021 I received my Ph.D. in mathematics from Penn State University under the supervision of Yakov Pesin. While at Penn State, I also taught several undergraduate mathematics courses at various levels, was a member of the Eberly College of Science Committee for Climate and Diversity, and was a founding member of the Department of Mathematics Graduate Student Association.

Before being a Ph.D. student at Penn State, I received my bachelor’s degree from Hamilton College in 2015, where I also worked as a peer tutor in the Quantitative and Symbolic Reasoning Center.

Here is my CV.

I also have a blog where I wax philosophic on math, science, and spirituality. Check it out here!
