I am a postdoc in the Discrete Mathematics Group at the Institute of Basic Sciences in Daejeon, South Korea which is lead by Sang-il Oum.

I am interested in structural graph theory and its algorithmic applications. Lately I’ve been particularly excited about forbidding induced subgraphs and distributed graph algorithms. Broadly, I am interested in discrete math and its applications.

I obtained my PhD from the Program for Applied and Computational Math at Princeton University in May 2021. Paul Seymour was my advisor. My Phd thesis is On recognition algorithms and structure of graphs with restricted induced cycles.

In August 2024, I will be moving to a postdoc position at University of Amsterdam supervised by Ross Kang.
