Due to the war in Ukraine, I took a one-year off (Spring 2022 and Fall 2022). In the first 6 months of the war, I founded a 501c3 non-profit organization called "Support Ukraine With Us" while residing in the U.S. I spent the next 6 months in Ukraine, specifically in Dnipro, Kyiv, and Lviv, working on various humanitarian projects. In the span of that year, I was able to raise around $200,000 for aid.

This experience had a profound impact on me, ultimately influencing the direction of my current research since my return to Berkeley in January 2023.

YouTube Channel

I maintain a YouTube channel where I share insightful videos for fun and educational purposes. It serves as a platform for me to explain complex mathematical problems in a comprehensible manner.
