Anything is possible when the premise is false... It's vacuously true!

I'm a mathematician, artist, and educator from Champaign, Illinois. I'm working toward a BS in Pure Mathematics at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute, Indiana, expecting to graduate in the Spring of 2022. I'm minoring in German, political science, and astronomy/astrophysics. I've also taken classes with Budapest Semesters in Mathematics, Budapest Semesters in Mathematics Education, and Parkland Community College.

My mathematical research has been primarily in graph theory and number theory, sometimes applied to voting theory or art. I've also done research in math education and physics. I've mentored three high school research projects, all in combinatorics.

Lately, I've been working for the Art of Problem Solving (AoPS), TA'ing for courses and mentoring students. I've also been a PROMYS counselor for the past three summers.

I founded and organized the first three Sonia Kovalevsky Math Days for Girls at Rose-Hulman, and I'm a founding and current organizer of the Online Undergraduate Resource Fair for the Advancement in Academia of Marginalized Mathematicians (OURFA2M2), an online conference that aims to support and unite undergraduate mathematicians from any and all marginalized backgrounds and identities. I also founded the Rose-Hulman Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) chapter, and am highly involved in our chapter of oSTEM (the professional organization for LGBTQ+ students in STEM), Unity.

I currently serve on the executive committee of the council of Grace Lutheran Church in Champaign, Illinois.
