Professional Information:

I am an assistant professor of combinatorics and probability in artificial intelligence at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden. My research is funded by the Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems, and Software Program (WASP), Vetenskapsrådet (The Swedish Research Council), Göran Gustafsson Stiftelsen (The Göran Gustafsson Foundation) and KTH Digital Futures. In Fall 2019, I was a visiting researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Natural Sciences in Leipzig, Germany. Prior to 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.

Areas of Research:

Upcoming and Recent Activities:

I am a member of the organizing committee for the upcoming Summer School in Applied Algebraic Geometry in Bogotá, Colombia funded by UMALCA.

I am member of the organizing committee for the upcoming AlCoVE 2024: An Algebraic Combinatorics Virtual Expedition. This is the fourth iteration of a yearly virtual conference for algebraic combinatorics funded by the United States National Science Foundation. This year, as a satellite workshop to the main conference, we are organizing a summer school to take place entirely in virtual reality.

I was recently a visiting scholar at the University of Chicago, where I took part in program on Algebraic Statistics and our Changing World at the Institute for Mathematical and Statistical Innovation.

In January, I will be speaking at the Biennial Meeting of the Royal Spanish Mathematical Society in Pamplona, Spain.

In February, I will be speaking at the European Workshop on Algebraic Statistics and Graphical Models in Munich, Germany.

In March, I will be speaking at the applied mathematics colloquium at Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, Illinois.
