I am a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Mathematics of Oklahoma State University, where I am one of the faculty advisors for the AWM (Association for Women in Mathematics) OSU Chapter.
In 2019-2021 I was a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics of the University of California, Riverside, where I was awarded Outstanding Visiting Assistant Professor Awards in 2020 and 2021. I obtained my Ph.D. degree in Mathematics from Purdue University in 2019, under the supervision of Prof. Bernd Ulrich.
I am currently on the academic job market for positions starting Fall 2024.
My research is in Commutative Algebra and I am particularly interested in its interaction with Algebraic Geometry, Combinatorics and Representation Theory.
In Fall 2023 I am teaching MATH 3013 (Linear algebra). All course information is posted on Canvas.
