I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the National Science Foundation Research Training Group in Combinatorics, Computation, and Applications. My research is in combinatorics and graph theory, especially enumerative and extremal graph theory, combinatorics on words, universal cycles, and crossing numbers.
