About Me

I am an assistant professor of mathematics at the University of Wisconsin – Whitewater (Whitewater, WI).  My primary research interests are in topological combinatorics, a sub-field of mathematics devoted to using creative counting techniques to study the properties of abstract space.

I graduated with my Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Kentucky (Lexington, KY) in May 2017.  My research advisor was Dr. Benjamin Braun, and my dissertation was titled “On Independence, Matching, and Homomorphism Complexes.”  I also earned my M.A. in mathematics from U. Kentucky in August 2014 under the guidance of Dr. Bertrand Guillou.  I earned my B.A. with a double major in mathematics and economics from Hanover College (Hanover, IN) in May 2012.

In my spare time, I like to binge-watch crime dramas on Netflix with my cat, Cairo.  I enjoy reading, logic puzzles, life-simulation video games, and various board games.  I have taken up crochet in recent years as well.
