Description of Research: 

Polytopes are classical mathematical objects that continue to have application in a variety of fields such as game theory, particle physics, and number theory. My research focuses on finding connections between arithmetic properties and geometry. Currently, I am studying how polytopes relate to problems in linear optimization.
