Mathematical Modeling & Mathematical Cognition


Currently pursuing research in mathematical sense-making of undergraduate mathematics majors in introductory proof courses under the direction of  Dr. Anna Marie Conner. I examine students' mathematics from cognitive and discursive lenses. Previous research in infectious disease epidemiology and modeling were conducted under the direction of Dr. Juan Gutierrez at the University of Georgia.

I have concurrent interests in mathematics education policy, student retention in STEM fields, the mathematical education of future teachers, mathematics education from PreK through graduate study, and computational/mathematical biology.
