I am an Acting Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Washington. If you are looking for Assistant Acting Professors, I recommend you instead look here.

My research interests lie primarily in algebraic and topological combinatorics. I am particularly interested in studying the interplay of various algebraic, topological, and combinatorial properties of simplicial complexes. I received my PhD in 2018 under the supervision of Jeremy Martin at the University of Kansas, and my research mentor at UW is Isabella Novik. My CV can be found here.

I enjoy teaching all levels and areas of mathematics. This fall, I am teaching Math 300: Introduction to Mathematical Reasoning and supervising a WXML project on graph matchings. If you're an undergraduate who's interested in working on research with me, please feel free to email me to discuss possible projects.

Outside of math, I enjoy board games, playing the piano, and traveling with my wife and our cat, Napoleon.
