I am a Herchel Smith Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics at the University of Cambridge and a Junior Research Fellow in Trinity College. Previously, I obtained my PhD in the probability group in the University of British Columbia in Vancouver under the supervision of Asaf Nachmias and Omer Angel. Before that, I completed my BA and MMath at King's College, Cambridge.

I was an intern in the Microsoft Research Theory Group in the summers of 2015, 2016, and 2017 under the mentorship of Ander Holroyd and Yuval Peres, and was supported during my PhD by Microsoft Research PhD Fellowship.
