I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at UNC, Chapel Hill.

My research interests lie in categorification, low-dimensional topology, and representation theory. More specifically, I work on Khovanov-Rozansky homology, KLR algebras and categorified quantum groups, quantum invariants of links and 3-manifolds, skein modules, and related structures.

I am a co-organizer of the Triangle Topology Seminar.

My work is currently supported by the Simons Foundation.
