After doing my BS in engineering physics, I started my PhD in experimental atomic physics. But I quit to do math, and am now a 3rd year student of Michael Hutchings.
I greatly thank Allen Hatcher for his recommendation letter which pulled me into college, after learning algebraic topology through his book in high school.
