About Me

I am interested in noticing patterns in everyday life. I find pure mathematics to be highly pattern-oriented, and strongly believe that applying a similar problem-solving approach and abstract mindset will solve real-world problems. I am highly interested in algebra, notably group, Galois, and representation theory, and algebraic number theory.

Axioms of Federico Ardila

I find these axioms of Prof. Federico Ardila to be incredibly useful and accurate in my pedagogy:

  1. Mathematical potential is equally present in different groups, irrespective of geographic, demographic and economic boundaries.
  2. Everyone can have joyful, meaningful and empowering mathematical experiences.
  3. Mathematics is a powerful, malleable tool that can be shaped and used differently by various communities to serve their needs.
  4. Every student deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.
