Welcome! I am a sixth year Ph.D. student in mathematics at the University of Georgia. I visited the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Bonn during the 2019-2020 academic year. I earned my B.A. in mathematics at Saint Louis University in 2016.

I am absolutely thrilled to announce that after graduation I will be spending another year at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics, followed by a postdoc at the University of Virginia.

To see what I’ve been up to lately, check out my research, teaching, and outreach pages. For a more detailed version of my mathematical history, view my CV here or click the button below.

I subscribe to Federico Ardila’s axioms:

  1. Mathematical potential is distributed equally among different groups, irrespective of geographic, demographic, and economic boundaries.
  2. Everyone can have joyful, meaningful, and empowering mathematical experiences.
  3. Mathematics is a powerful, malleable tool that can be shaped and used differently by various communities to serve their needs.
  4. Every student deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.
