I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at IMSA-Miami and ICMS-Sofia, working with Ludmil Katzarkov.
Prior to that, I did my PhD at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst under the supervision of Jenia Tevelev.


My research area is algebraic geometry. I am particularly interested in applications of derived categories and semi-orthogonal decompositions towards problems in different areas of algebraic geometry, such as moduli theory, invariant theory, birational geometry, among others.
