## About me

I am a postdoctoral fellow in the mathematics department at MIT working with Henry Cohn. Before, I was an ICERM semester postdoc at Brown, a postdoc at CWI working with Monique Laurent, and a PhD student at Delft University of Technology advised by Frank Vallentin.

My research interests include:

- Convex optimization (in particular, semidefinite programming and SDP hierarchies)
- Discrete geometry (in particular, packing and energy minimization)
- Quantum information theory
- Harmonic analysis
- Real algebraic geometry (in particular, sum-of-squares characterizations)
