Hano Rund Postdoctoral Fellow, University of Arizona

I am the Hano Rund Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Arizona. My postdoctoral mentors are Profs. Anton Izosimov and Christoph Keller. I received my PhD in 2017 from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign under the direction of Prof. Maarten Bergvelt. I was previously a Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Notre Dame, where my mentor was Prof. Katrina Barron. My research is in vertex operator algebras and integrable systems.

This Fall 2020 semester, I am teaching Math 125 (Calculus I) at the University of Arizona.

This past Spring 2020, I taught teaching Abstract Algebra: Group Theory and Ring Theory.

During the summer before last, I developed and ran a special summer course on the representation theory of finite groups. The students read and presented on all of Benjamin Steinberg's "Representation Theory of Finite Groups: An Introductory Approach". At the end of the summer, I helped teach the students to use LaTeX to make posters on what they learned. I hope the students enjoyed the program as much as I did!

More information on my teaching can be found in my CV .
