I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics Texas A&M University. Previously, I was a J.L. Doob Research Assistant Professor and an NSERC postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Before moving to Illinois, I was a graduate student in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada.


Research Interests: Operator algebras and functional analysis. In particular, my research focuses on free probability, quantum groups, non-commutative harmonic analysis, approximation properties for operator algebras, and connections between these fields. I am also currently investigating applications of quantum groups in quantum information theory.
