Welcome! I am a Visiting Assistant Professor at Harvey Mudd College. Before that, I was a Visiting Assistant Professor at Michigan State University. I earned my Ph.D. in mathematics at the University of Kentucky, under the guidance of Benjamin Braun. During the 2013-2014 academic year I worked with Alexander Engström and his research group at Aalto University in Finland through a Fulbright U.S. Student Award.

My CV can be found here (last updated November 2018).
