About

Dear visitor, welcome to my website. I am a postdoctoral researcher at LinKaGe Lab (UMass Amherst & Smith College); previously I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Harvard Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Science, ZSEM, and The University of Manchester.

My PhD was completed in November 2015 under the supervision of Prof Alexandre Borovik at the School of Mathematics, University of Manchester.

My main research interests revolve around Grothendieck’s Esquisse, specifically the theory of dessins d’enfants, and the representation theory of Brauer Graph and Brauer Configuration Algebras. In particular, in joint work with Prof Sibylle Schroll from the University of Leicester, I am introducing homological and representation-theoretic tools to the study of the absolute Galois group of Q via its action on dessins d’enfants. Currently I am workig with Prof Ileana Streinu on various topics in matroid and rigidity theory.
