I recently received my Ph.D. in mathematics from Brandeis University in Waltham, MA under the supervision of Ira Gessel. Prior to my time at Brandeis, I received my Bachelor of Arts in mathematics and philosophy from Goucher College in Baltimore, MD.

In July 2018, I will begin a tenure-track appointment as Assistant Professor of Mathematics and Computer Science at Computer Science at Davidson College. I am thrilled to be returning to a small liberal arts college where I can give my students the kind of caring and support that once helped me succeed!

Broadly speaking, my research interests lie in the area of enumerative and algebraic combinatorics. I mainly work in permutation enumeration and its connections to symmetric function theory and combinatorial Hopf algebras.

Here are some of my favorite math quotes.
