I am a Caltech SURF Fellow, author, and 2020 doctoral candidate studying perfectoid spaces and equivariant motivic homotopy theory. I am currently Chair of the AWM-MAA Liaison Committee, Program Vice Chair of the Southern California-Nevada Section of the MAA, Alternate NSS Lecturer Representative to the Academic Senate at Cal State LA, the At-Large Representative and Secretary of the Faculty Council Committee, and an officer of the Future Pedagogy and Faculty Research Committees at ArtCenter College of Design (ACCD),

For Summer 2020, I am teaching Math 4650 Analysis I (Cal State LA) and a Guided Study on Turing Computability (ACCD). I just concluded my three part talk on Perfectoid Spaces at UCR and completed a wonderful MSRI workshop on factorization homology.  

I am hosting a Women in Mathematics Seminar every Wednesday commencing June 3rd, showcasing our reserach and adaptive pedagogy.  For details or to join our consortium, please email me. 

The talks I am giving at the Women In Mathematics Seminar at Cal State LA are as detailed: 

June 8:  APF + The Redshift Conjecture

June 8: Perfectoid Spaces and FFC

June 17: Motivic Spectra + Algebraic K-Theory
