I am an NSF Postdoctoral Fellow in the School of Mathematics at Georgia Tech working with Dan Margalit.

I am the subject of the Grand Prize winning essay for the 2020 AWM Student Essay Contest, which is entitled "A Lonely Road to Loving Math" and was written by the very talented Lu Paris. Read her essay here.

I recently co-authored an article, Broadening the Horizons of Teaching and Diversity in Mathematics Departments, that appeared in the December 2019 issue of the Notices of the AMS which described work my co-authors and I have done to improve our grad departments' climates for marginalized mathematicians.

I co-organize SUBgroups with Justin Lanier. SUBgroups are small online peer support groups for first-year math grad students as they transition into their graduate careers.

My research interests lie in the study of low dimensional topology and the mapping class group. You can find my most recent preprints and publications here and my CV here.
