I am a Hill Assistant Professor at Rutgers University, where my mentors are Henryk Iwaniec and Alex Kontorovich. My research interests lie at the intersection of the geometry, arithmetic and dynamics of discrete subgroups of SL(2,R). I received my PhD in 2016 from ETH Zürich, where my advisor was Alessandra Iozzi.
