Profile Pic
PhD Student

I am a PhD student in the Department of Mathematics at University of Virginia working under the guidance of Prof. Craig Huneke. My research interests lie mainly in Commutative Algebra.  I study various properties of Noetherian rings and modules over such rings.

I am also taking part in developing packages on Macaulay 2, a software that is used in Commutative Algebra and Algebraic Geometry. 

Some of the topics that I have spent some time thinking about, are as follows:

  • The Module of Kähler Differentials
  • Reflexive modules and trace ideals
  • Hilbert-Samuel Multiplicity
  • Local Cohomology 

I have served both as a Graduate Teaching Instructor as well as a Graduate Research Assistant. I won an All University Graduate Teaching Award in 2020. 

Currently, I am also participating in various research projects in Cryptography with Prof. David J. Wu.
