Currently, I am a third year Ph.D student in the Iowa State University Department of Mathematics studying under Bernard Lidický. My reaserch interests include graph theory and combinatorics. Previously, I earned my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in mathematics from East Tennessee State University. For my Master's Thesis, titled "On t-Restricted Optimal Rubbling of Graphs," I studied uner Dr. Teresa Haynes and Dr. Robert Beeler.
When I am not doing math, you will probably find me playing bluegrass music. I actually minored in bluegrass at East Tennessee State University! I also enjoy playing foosball, basketball, and ultimate frisbee.
