I am a fifth-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Mathematics at Brandeis University in Waltham, MA. I grew up in Montgomery County, MD and I received my Bachelor of Arts in mathematics and philosophy from Goucher College in Baltimore, MD.

Broadly speaking, my research interests lie in the area of enumerative and algebraic combinatorics. I mainly work in permutation enumeration, particularly with descent statistics, occasionally intersecting the theory of combinatorial Hopf algebras. Much of my current work is related to the topic of shuffle-compatible permutation statistics and their shuffle algebras. My advisor is Ira Gessel.

I am on the academic job market! Here is my CV, my research statement, my teaching statement, and my diversity statement.

I co-organize the Combinatorics Seminar with Olivier Bernardi.

Here are some of my favorite math quotes.
