Prior to Stanford, I was a grad student at the Mathematical Institute at Oxford, where I studied the intersection of spectral graph theory and geometry.

My undergraduate was spent at the University of British Columbia studying mathematics and computer science, where I was immensely fortunate to be supervised by Will Evans and Anne Condon.
