His STEM interests primarily concern mathematics, where he has conducted research into knot theory, specifically studying crossing-number bounds on n-crossing knot projections. He has attended the Ross Mathematics Program two consecutive summers, the second time as a Junior Counselor in 2022. There he studied number theory and took graduate-level classes in Ergodic Ramsey theory.
