I am currently an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at The University of Wisconsin - Stout in Menomonie, Wisconsin. I was previously an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri (2014-2018) and 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).
