About me

This website has mostly professional and mathematical content. If you’re looking for current teaching materials, try here.

I am a fourth-year PhD student in the mathematics department at UC Berkeley, advised by Nicolai Reshetikhin.

I study quantum and low-dimensional topology and related topics in representation theory and mathematical physics. For more details, see here.


The special linear Lie algebra of rank two is a central object in representation theory. “esselltwo” is one way to pronounce it.
