About Me

I am a mathematics Ph.D. student at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. I am part of the PaDAS lab (Pathogen Dynamics Across Scales) and my advisor is Pamela Martinez. I am interested in the association between social inequality and disease transmission, as well as One Health and the influence of climate change on infectious disease dynamics.

I completed my undergraduate studies in mathematics at the University of Washington, with minors in Norwegian and the Comparative History of Ideas. I also have significant coursework relating to public health.

Outside of academia, my interests include music, swimming, and travel. I also review fries.


I strive to follow the axioms proposed by Federico Ardila.

  1. Mathematical talent is distributed equally among different groups, irrespective of geographic, demographic, and economic boundaries.
  2. Everyone can have joyful, meaningful, and empowering mathematical experiences.
  3. Mathematics is a powerful, malleable tool that can be shaped and used differently by various communities to serve their needs.
  4. Every student deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.
