I am a second-year Ph.D. student studying pure mathematics at Cornell University.
My advisor is Allen Knutson.

In 2021, I recieved a M.Sc. degree in mathematics from the Univerity of Ottawa.
My M.Sc. advisors were Alistair Savage and Kirill Zainoulline.
In 2019, I received a B.Sc. in physics-mathematics from the University of Ottawa.

The following notes give expository accounts of results that appear to be "well-known" in the literature. However, I have not been able to find proofs of these results anywhere, so I have written up the proofs myself.

The GRASSHOPR program at Cornell University provides graduate students with the opportunity to create a mini-course (3-5 lessons) and teach the course at a local elementary, middle, or high school in Ithaca, NY.

Between March 4-March 11, 2022, Aria Beaupré and I taught a mini-course at Namasté Montessori School in Ithaca, NY. The course was called "The Mathematics of Decision Making," and our target audience was Grade 4-Grade 6 students. The mini-course consisted of four lessons. The first three lessons were 1 hour long, while the last lesson was 2 hours long. Topics covered included positional voting systems, approval voting, pairwise voting, and strategic voting. Here are the worksheets that we prepared for each of the four lessons: Lesson 1. Lesson 2. Lesson 3. Lesson 4.

The directed reading program is organized by the Cornell mathematics department. The program pairs undergraduate students studying mathematics at Cornell (mentees) with mathematics Ph.D. students at Cornell (mentors). The mentee and mentor together read a mathematics textbook of mutual interest for one semester.

My mentee and I are currently reading "Arithmetic of Elliptic Curves" by Joseph H. Silverman.
