I am currently an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri. I have been at Westminster since the fall of 2014.  I was previously an Assistant Professor of mathematics at Viterbo University in La Crosse, Wisconsin (2013-2014).  I study commutative algebra and combinatorics.  I am especially interested in generalized factorization properties in commutative rings with zero divisors.  I am also interested in studying connections between graph theory and algebra, especially zero-divisor graphs and graph labeling.  More about me here.

I am very excited to have been selected as a Project NExT 2013-2014 Fellow (Brown13).
