I am a 4th year Ph.D. student in the department of mathematics at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. I am studying algebraic geometry and geometric representation theory with Shrawan Kumar. My current research is on the K-theory and cohomology of flag varieties.

Prior to attending UNC I received a master's in mathematics from Temple University and before that spent two years at Rutgers University, graduating with a BA in mathematics. In a past life I studied jazz saxophone at the Eastman School of Music.

Upcoming: You may have seen me at the following previous conferences:


This summer I am teaching Linear Algebra for Applications (Math 547) during summer session 1.

During Fall 2017 and Spring 2018 I will be supported by the Dissertation Completion Fellowship, so I will not be teaching.

Previously, I have taught the following courses at UNC: In August of 2016 I ran the week-long bootcamp on linear algebra for incoming graduate students.

Fun Stuff:

One summer I decided to learn to program in Haskell for fun. One of my projects was to create a program that generates fractals using Newton's method. The program is interactive in that it allows you to click on any part of the fractal image to zoom in indefinitely. You can see some of the fractals I have generated at the fractal gallery.
