I am a Teacher-Scholar Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Wake Forest University working with Dr. Ellen Kirkman. My research interests are in noncommutative algebra, particularly noncommutative ring theory and noncommutative algebraic geometry. For more information, see my CV.

I earned my PhD at the University of California, San Diego where my advisor was Daniel Rogalski (pictured above!). I defended my thesis, "The graded module category of a generalized Weyl algebra", on May 2, 2016.

Before that, I received my BS in mathematics from Duke University. I'm now back in North Carolina learning to be a Demon Deacon.
