Curriculum Vitae

I am a fifth year Ph. D. student in mathematics at the University of Illinois at Chicago, studying under Marc Culler. I am interested broadly in low-dimensional topology and geometric group theory; my thesis work focuses on free group automorphisms.

Publications & Preprints

(almost) All of my publications are available on the arXiv.


At UIC I have taught for the Emerging Scholar's Program, a Treisman-style workshop for Calculus. In addition to classroom activities my duties included mentoring newer instructors and aiding fellow teaching assistants in using active learining in their own discussion sections. I also regularly volunteer as a facilitator for Math Circles of Chicago and a judge for K-12 competitions and mathematics fairs.

This semester I am a Research Assistant for the UIC Mathematical Computing Laboratory, assisting in lab maitenance and organizing workshops to recruit undergraduates for projects in future semesters.
