About Me!

I will be a Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow this coming Fall 2019 at Ithaca College. I completed my graduate work at University of California, Riverside under the supervision of Dr. Vyjayanthi Chari. I am also an alumni of Cal Poly Pomona, where I received my Bachelors of Science in Mathematics in 2010, and Eastern Michigan University where I received my Masters of Arts in Mathematics in 2013.

I never thought I would have the opportunity to receive my PhD in mathematics. Growing up, my only thoughts were that I would attend some sort of college. When I got there, I decided to major in math since I was labeled as good at it as a K-12 student. I wanted to be a high school math teacher, not knowing graduate school was a possibility. I am very thankful for all my mentors along my journey, both guiding and providing feedback so that I can be successful.

Outside of doing math, I love playing and watching sports! Football, baseball and basketball are my favorites. I also enjoy spending time with my wife and kids, watching all the Pixar movies on a loop. Each day, there is never a dull moment, and I always enjoy what challenges life brings.
