I am an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Iona College, in New Rochelle, NY. This semester I am teaching Mathematical Thinking, Calculus II, Demystifying Numbers, and Number Theory. If you are in any of these courses, please use the blackboard site to access course materials.

I received my PhD from the Mathematics Department at Duke University in May, 2015, and received my B.A. in Mathematics and Physics from the University of Pennsylvania in 2009.  I taught a number of undergraduate math courses as the primary instructor in my time at Duke, in both introductory and multivariable calculus.  My graduate research was in algebraic geometry, with a focus on toric geometry and mathematical physics.  While I am still interested in these areas, my recent interests include both understanding rule variants within combinatorial games, and mathematics education research.
