Main thing I would work on is speeding up your pull / squat under. The lift itself is really good overall, but you definitely hesitate a lot squatting under - as if you've done a lot of power cleans and relatively few cleans. So focus on turning it over and meeting the bar but smoothly and immediately sitting into that squat. Tall cleans or dip cleans will probably help.
