I am an assistant professor of combinatorics and probability in artificial intelligence at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden. My research at KTH is funded by the Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems, and Software Program (WASP) and a four-year starting grant from Vetenskapsrådet (The Swedish Research Council). During Spring 2020, I was a faculty member of the Semester Program on Algebraic and Enumerative Combinatorics at Institutet Mittag-Leffler in Stockholm, Sweden. During Fall 2019, I was a visiting researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Natural Sciences in Leipzig, Germany. Before that, I was a US NSF Mathematical Sciences Postdoctoral Research Fellow at KTH with Petter Brändén, and a postdoctoral researcher at IST Austria and MIT with Caroline Uhler. I completed my PhD in mathematics in December 2015 at University of Kentucky under the supervision of Benjamin Braun.
