I am a first year math PhD student at Stanford University. Some words that get me excited include: dynamics, computation, information, ergodicity, coarse-graining, category theory, time, and structure. I would love to understand how small interacting parts (atoms, neurons, people) create a unified, agentic whole (the universe, me, the economy).
I think a lot of about teaching and education. Between my Masters degree and PhD, I taught middle school computer science and a math class on combinatorics and number systems. Currently, I work with Jo Boaler on math(s) education and am a teaching assistant.
