SFU was a wonderful place to me to develop as a mathematician. In addition to the benefits of a friendly atmosphere and lively student life, I was a part of a great research group, led by my supervisor, Dr. Bojan Mohar. I gained skills and intuition, which guide me as I continue on my path in academia.

My research background, built while I was a student at SFU and at University of Waterloo, is in algebraic graph theory. Together with Bojan Mohar, we worked on a project where we brought the tools of algebraic graph theory to a new setting, the world of digraphs. Since leaving SFU, I've continued in this stream of research and am working on interdisciplinary projects, in graph theory and quantum computing. I am currently a visiting scholar at the Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing, at the University of California, Berkeley, where I am hoping find connections between optimization and algebraic graph theory.
