I'm a Ph.D. candidate at the Institute of Applied Mathematics at the University of British Columbia. Please read my CV
, Research Statement
, and Teaching Statement
to learn more. In addition to my standard duties as a graduate student, I am a contributor to (and maintainer of) the UBC Math Educational Resources wiki
which offers solutions to past math exams in addition to instructional content. This project has been incredibly rewarding for me, not to mention loads of fun!
