About Me

I am a postdoc in the Algebraic Combinatorics group at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB). My postdoc mentor is Christian Stump. I completed my PhD in July 2021 at the University of Minnesota (Twin Cities) under the supervision of Vic Reiner. In May 2015, I graduated from Bard College with a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics.

In the academic year 2022/23, Christian Stump and I are organizing the RUB Combinatorics Seminar.

Mathematical Interests

Broadly, I am interested in algebraic combinatorics, especially problems related to hyperplane arrangements, (oriented) matroids, posets, and combinatorial aspects of commutative algebra.

I like talking about math, so if you want to learn more about what I do, send me an email and ask!
