I am an Assistant Professor at George Mason University, studying commutative algebra. I received my PhD from the University of Michigan in Summer 2016, under the guidance of Mel Hochster, and then did a postdoc at Syracuse University from 2016-2018. I'm interested in closure operations, particularly those with similar properties to tight closure, and big Cohen-Macaulay modules and algebras. I also work on free resolutions and matrix factorizations, particularly over rings of characteristic p>0.

My teaching interests include the use of active learning and inquiry in the classroom. See to find groups interested in using inquiry in the classroom.
