My primary research interests are in elliptic partial differential equations. I am currently studying a method of approximating weak solutions of Poisson's equation on Lipschitz domains with mixed boundary data with my advisor Dr. Russell Brown. Of particular interest are the smoothness of approximate solutions, the rate of convergence of approximate solutions to the actual solution, and layer potential methods for solving the approximate problem.

I graduated from Millersville University (Millersville, PA) in May 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in mathematics and a minor in philosophy. In December 2013, under the direction of Dr. Russell Brown, I earned my master’s degree in mathematics from the University of Kentucky.
