I am a fourth-year graduate student in Mathematics at Auburn University studying under Hal Schenck. I earned a B.S. in Mathematics with minors in History and Classics at the University of Kentucky. While at the University of Kentucky, I conducted research with the University of Kentucky Math Lab and also as part of the Multimodal Vision Research Laboratory.

My primary research interests lie in commutative algebra and topological data analysis. However, I've been finding that a lot of side projects that interest me come from combinatorial optimization. A copy of my CV can be found here along with my contact information.
