Hello! Welcome to my homepage. I am working towards a mathematics PhD at the University of Toronto under the supervision of Lisa Jeffrey. Here you will find my current research interests, a brief CV, and other assorted hobbies and interests of mine. My current research activities involve computing the Betti numbers of symplectic reductions of the based loop groups of compact Lie groups.
