About Me

Personal Headshot from Manbeck-Hoxter Wedding

My name is Chris and I'm a mathematics Ph.D. student at University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) studying Algebraic Geometry with a focus towards stability conditions (as occuring in String theory, etc).

Prior to my focus on pure mathematics, I completed my masters in applied computational topology, which itself was a bit of an abstraction from my undergrad in computer science engineering. Oddly enough, it all started with my love of Latin and classical Greek — but that's getting a bit off track.

Nowadays I spend the majority of my free time either woodworking like my father, or downhill / slalom longboarding (see homepage video). If you're ever in the central California area for the latter, give me a hollar. Thanks for visiting!
