I am currently a postdoc at the University of Vienna, working under the advisement of Anton Mellit on the FWF project titled “Macdonald Polynomials and Related Structures in Geometry”. I received my PhD from North Carolina State University in May 2019 under the advisement of Radmila Sazdanovic. My PhD thesis, titled “Thin Posets and Categorification”, centered around the topics of knot theory, categorification, topological combinatorics, and graph theory. Before my graduate studies at NCSU, I received degrees in math and physics at Michigan State University where I focused on combinatorics and representation theory.

**Status: **1st year postdoc, will be on the job market starting Fall 2020 for a position starting Fall 2021

**Research Interests:** Algebraic combinatorics, categorification, diagrammatic algebra, graph theory, knot theory, low dimensional topology, topological combinatorics.
