Welcome! Before joining Colgate, I was a Visiting Assistant Professor at Harvey Mudd College, and at Michigan State University before that. I earned my Ph.D. 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.
In the Fall 2019 semester I am teaching Math 163: Calculus III (sections B and C) and Math 310: Combinatorial Problem Solving. All information for these courses can be found on Moodle.
My CV can be found here (last updated July 2019).
