Research interests and background

My current research interests lie in the intersection of geometric representation theory and quantum knot invariants. More specifically, I am interested in investigating problems in these fields using techniques and inspirations from higher category theory and homotopy theory.

Specific topics of interest include categorification, factorization algebra/homology, quantum knot invariants, quantum groups, and homological stability.

My papers and preprints are on my research page, and my CV is available here.

I completed my PhD at the University of Chicago in June 2017 under the guidance of Ngo Bao Chau and Dennis Gaitsgory. I was an undergraduate at Princeton University.

In my free time, I like to compose and arrange music. You can listen to my music on Soundcloud and YouTube.


I organize the Algebra and Geometry Seminar at HKUST.
