  I am a postdoctoral research fellow at the Department of Mathematics at The Weizmann Institute of Science. My mentors are Professor Maria Gorelik and Professor Anthony Joseph.


  My research interests include cluster algebras, representation theory, mathematical physics, combinatorics, and semigroups. For more information, please see my CV.
