  • Throttling Numbers for Cops vs. Gambler

    Along with my research partners James Lin and Carl Joshua Quines, under the mentorship of Dr. Jesse Geneson, I created this presentation for the Eighth Annual MIT PRIMES conference. The presentation was held by James and myself on the MIT campus in Cambridge, MA on May 19, 2018.

  • Random Walks in Expander Graphs

    I created this presentation as part of the UC Berkeley Directed Reading Program (DRP) in Fall 2017 under the mentorship of graduate student Rahul Dalal.

    The Directed Reading Program provides undergraduates with the opportunity to work closely with UC Berkeley mathematics graduate students in an independent reading project. The goal is to enable motivated undergraduates to engage with mathematics in more depth and breadth than is typically possible in a classroom.

    The presentation was given to other mentors and mentees of the program.

  • Constructible Numbers in Origami

    This was an individual project I did for my upper division Classical Geometries (MATH 130) class at UC Berkeley in November 2017. I presented how origami can be used to construct every number (i.e., ratio of a length) that can be constructed with a compass and straightedge, plus some.
