I recently graduated with a Ph.D. in math from UNC-Chapel Hill, where I worked with Jeremy Marzuola on spectral theory and consistency properties of graph Laplacians. I have also dabbled with problems in shape optimization, machine learning, topological data analysis, and computational biology.
I am currently a Wylie Assistant Professor at the University of Utah, having started in Fall 2021.
I am part of the MAA's Project NExT Gold '21 cohort.
Here are some of my publications and works in progress.
In Spring 2021 I was funded by and took part in SAMSI's Program on Data Science in the Social and Behavioral Sciences; I was also funded by SAMSI in Fall 2019 for their deep learning program. In Fall 2020 I was funded by the UNC Graduate School as an I4 boundary spanner, collaborating with UNC affiliated non-profits to assist North Carolina communities during the COVID19 pandemic and the ensuing social and economic recovery.
I was actively involved in the Chapel Hill Math Circle. A number of worksheets I have written are being collected into a book.
I have organized festival appearances for SIAM. Most recently I organized the SIAM booth and invited speakers for the (virtual) 2021 National Math Festival.
I co-organized a second iteration of the Workshop for Inclusive Teaching Practices, online this year due to COVID.
I was inducted into UNC's Frank Porter Graham Graduate and Professional Honor Society (FPGGPHS) at the end of the 2019-2020 academic year.
Here are a number of conferences I've attended, or will attend. If you know me (or otherwise) and would like to meet up, feel free to reach out!
