I am an NSF Postdoctoral Fellow and Visiting Assistant Professor in the School of Mathematics at Georgia Tech.

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.

I 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. I am also an organizer of the AMS's paraDIGMS (Diversity in Graduate Mathematical Sciences) initiative and a co-organizer of the Indigenous Mathematicians group.

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 as well as an article, Building equity-minded online programs, that appeared in the January 2021 issue of the Notices.

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.
