About me

I am a fifth-year graduate student at the University of Utah. My advisors are Anurag K. Singh and Srikanth B. Iyengar. My research interests lie in the intersection of Commutative Algebra, Algebraic Geometry and Combinatorics. Particularly, I am interested in determining the F-singularities of algebraic sets and constructing minimal free resolutions of monomial ideals using discrete Morse theory.

Here's a little bit about me. I am from Vietnam and moved to Salt Lake City for graduate school. In my free time I watch cinemas and play board games. My favorite movie is CODA, TV series is Schitt's Creek, and board game is Root. My preferred pronouns are he/him/his.

I am on the job market in Fall 2023. Here is my CV, updated October 2023.
