I am a Ph.D. graduate of Emory University (2018) having worked under the supervision of Ken Ono. My research interests lie primarily in number theory and combinatorics, in particular the theory of partitions, special functions in the orbit of modular forms (qseries, mock theta functions, quantum modular forms), and analytic number theory (prime distribution, Riemann zeta function, arithmetic functions).
Other active interests include physics (statistical physics, acoustics), computational chemistry, mathematical music theory, knot theory, history of mathematics, ethnomathematics, philosophy, poetry, astronomy, visual and conceptual art, sound sculpture, electronics  and sharing the beauty of mathematics with students.
I am also an indiepop musician, composer of instrumental and experimental music, recording studio producer/engineer, and cofounder of the Elephant 6 Recording Co., a collective of musicians and artists.
