About

I am a Postdoctoral Scholar in the mathematics department at UK, where my mentor is Dave Jensen.

I received my PhD in 2017 from the University of Oregon, under the supervision of Nick Proudfoot. Before coming to UK, I spent a year at Yale as a Gibbs Assistant Professor.

Research

My research is in combinatorics and algebraic geometry. Particular areas of interest include tropical and non-archimedean geometry, toric and hypertoric varieties, hyperplane arrangements, matroids, and combinatorial Hodge theory. Find a list of my papers and preprints here.

I have recently supervised undergraduate research projects through the UK Math Lab and SUMRY.

I am a member of the algebra group at UK, and for the 2020-2021 academic year I am organizing the Algebra Seminar.

Teaching

In Spring 2021 I am teaching MA 261: Introduction to Number Theory and MA 764: The Geometry of Matroids.

I am the faculty advisor for the UK Math Club. If you are an undergraduate looking to get more involved with the math deparment, then I encourage you to attend a Math Club meeting and to check out the UK Math Lab, which runs research and visualization projects for undergraduates.
