I'm a recent (May 2016) Ph.D. graduate of the University of Georgia. I studied under the direction of Paul Pollack. My interests are mostly in the realm of (elementary/analytic) number theory.

Starting in the fall of 2016, I'll be a postdoctoral fellow in the mathematics department at the University of British Columbia.
