Who am I?
Last summer, I studied combinatorial properties of certain hyperplane arrangements at the Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics (ICERM). Afterwards, I returned to Stanford for my third year, where I am continuing my schoolwork, research, and art.
I have lived all over the United States, but I consider my “hometown” to be Seattle, where I lived the longest. I love reading, particularly where Asian-American literature meets science fiction and magical realism (see Ted Chiang or Ken Liu), as well as modernist and queer literature. I enjoy art, particularly writing, photography, knitting, and woodworking. I also enjoy playing games, both tabletop games and video games (most recently Celeste). My favorite genres of music are R&B (ex. Emawk or grentperez), alternative (ex. Mitski, Hozier, Arctic Monkeys, or TV Girl).
