I am a Teacher-Scholar Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Wake Forest University. My research mentor is Ellen Kirkman. I work on problems in noncommutative ring theory and noncommutative algebraic geometry. For more information, see my CV.

I was born and raised in New Jersey. I headed south to North Carolina for college, receiving my BS in mathematics from Duke University in 2011. I then made my way out west for graduate school at the University of California, San Diego. I spent five years learning a lot of algebra from Daniel Rogalski and eating a lot of fish tacos. I received my PhD in mathematics in 2016.

My dissertation was entitled "The graded module category of a generalized Weyl algebra". My then-five-month-old niece enjoyed reading it (maybe).

I am now back in North Carolina learning to be a Demon Deacon.
