Research Statement

I have a broad interest in Combinatorics, with an emphasis on Combinatorial Geometry and Additive Combinatorics. Much of my recent work involves studying incidence problems (such as the Sylvester-Gallai and Szemeredi-Trotter theorems), with a focus on the use of algebraic techniques.
