Welcome to my website!
I am a sixth year graduate student in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Notre Dame.
My research constructs an algebraic structure from geometry on the space of rectangular matrices. This work connects the two fields of Cluster Algebra and Poisson Geometry, and has applications to theoretical physics.
I am passionate about mentoring women and underrepresented groups in STEM. I have participated in various outreach opportunities, from judging science fairs to assisting the Chicago Pre-College Science and Engineering Program.
I am also enthusiastic about teaching and college pedagogy--particularly active and inquiry-based learning. As a Graduate Associate of the Kaneb Center, I design and deliver workshops, write practical, research-based blogs, and encourage the adoption of practices that enhance learning.
Outside of academics, I enjoy cooking, hiking, and playing sports. My most recent culinary adventure has been making homemade sourdough bread and my most recent backpacking trip was Denali National Park in Alaska.
