About Me

I am a mathematician. I have conducted research and written articles in pure and applied mathematics, as well as physics, though my primary area of research is algebraic topology, specifically categorical algebra in equivariant homotopy theory.

I teach following the principle of active learning, and have developed and assessed curricula for flipped-classroom and other active learning styles for a wide range of math courses, using both traditional and mastery-based grading schema.

I have experience with GAP, Macaulay2, and python.

I also enjoy swing dancing, hiking, and music.

Education and Academic Appointments

I am an Assistant Teaching Professor at Georgetown University in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics.

I was a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Math Department at Holy Cross from 2020 to 2021, and was a Postdoctoral Scholar in the topology group at the University of Kentucky from 2017 to 2020.

I completed my Ph.D. in Mathematics at the University of Virginia in 2017, under the supervision of Mike Hill.

I received my B.S. from Union College summa cum laude in 2011, majoring in mathematics and physics, with minors in classical history and Ancient Greek.
