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. I am currently teaching Math 445: Geometry for Teachers and Math 441: Topology. This fall, I will be teaching Math 300: Introduction to Mathematical Reasoning and (hopefully!) supervising a WXML project on graph matchings.

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