After doing my BS in engineering physics (with experimental research on gravity at small distance-scales), 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. I also thank Ken Brown for taking me under his wing during those college years, guiding me in group cohomology and homological algebra, although he didn't like that I was only taking physics courses. And also to Cliff Taubes for general guidance in math and life anecdotes, and for recommending that I meet Michael.
