I am an NSF postdoctoral fellow at McMaster University. My research lies in model theory and its applications. I completed my PhD at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where my advisor was Lou van den Dries.

I am interested in o-minimality, the model theory of valued fields, and the model theory of differential fields.
