I’m a graduate student at North Carolina State University. Before arriving at NCSU, I received degrees in math and physics at Michigan State University where I focused on combinatorics and representation theory. At NCSU I’ve focused more on low dimensional topology and categorification, but I still think a lot about discrete things and take a lot of motivation from all things combinatorial.

Status: 5th year PhD candidate currently on the job market.

Research Interests: Categorification, combinatorial algebraic topology, diagrammatic algebra, graph theory, knot theory, low dimensional topology.
