**About me**

I am a PhD candidate at the Department of Mathematics of The University of British Columbia, under the supervision of Prof.
Brian Marcus.

In general, I am drawn toward problems connecting ideas from dynamical systems and statistical mechanics with combinatorics.

Today I am focused on finding sufficient conditions for efficient approximation of thermodynamic quantities (e.g. entropy, pressure) in lattice models. This has lead me to the study of Gibbs measures, and the interplay between hard constraints and spatial mixing properties.

This term I am a visiting graduate student in the Counting Complexity and Phase Transitions program at the Simons Institute, UC Berkeley.
