I am a postdoc in mathematics at CMU. My research interests are in set theory, dynamics, order theory, and combinatorics. Click here for a copy of my research statement.

Papers and preprints

  1. Every linear order isomorphic to its cube is isomorphic to its square (Advances in Mathematics 313 (2017): 237-281)
  2. Distinct orders dividing each other on both sides (Proceedings of the AMS 147 (2019): 3729-3741)
  3. Realizing the ends of locally finite graphs (in preparation)
  4. Maximally splitting trees in locally finite graphs (in preparation)
