About Me

I am an 5th year PhD Student in the Department of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science . I graduated from Kenyon College with a BA in economics with high honors in 2011 and completed the Post-Baccalaureate Program in Mathematics at Smith College in 2014. You can find my CV here .

When I'm not doing math, I am involved the UIC Graduate Employees Organization . I also enjoying reading (usually on the train), hanging out with cats (whenever they will let me), and teaching myself Python (while I wait for my first cup of coffee to kick in).


This semester, I am a TA for Math 121: Precalculus and Math 110: Precalculus. I am also the instructor for Math 122: Emerging Scholars Workshop for Precalculus. My office hours are Monday 3-5 in SEO 430.


My research interests fall somewhere in the field of geometric group theory.
