Hello, my name is Kevin.

I am a 3rd year Ph.D. student in mathematics at Boston College, my advisor is Prof. Dr. John Baldwin.

My area of interest is low-dimensional topology. I am in particular interested in studying exotic phenomena in dimension 4.

I am also at the moment quite intrigued by the application of some machine learning techniques to obtain new results in knot theory, cf. this recent result of a collaboration between DeepMind and András Juhász.

Previously, I was a Masters student at ETH Zürich, in Zürich, Switzerland. While in Zürich I was primarily interested in algebraic geometry, specifically Gromov-Witten Invariants, and the mathematics related to string theory. At ETH I worked under Prof. Dr. Rahul Pandharipande.

I obtained by Bachelor’s degree from Courant Institute of New York University. I also spent some time briefly as a visiting undergraduate student at Columbia University.

Inspirations: John Baldwin. Lisa Piccirillo. Kyle Hayden. Joshua Greene. Nate Stemen. Eli Grigsby. Rafael De Los Santos.
