Assistant Professor of Mathematics

Hodson, Room 260


I grew up in York, Pennsylvania and went to Kutztown University for my bachelors in Math and Physics.  For graduate school, I attended University of Nebraska-Lincoln.  There I studied low-dimensional topology, focusing on knot theory and geometric and topological knot invariants.  After graduating in 2016, I spent one year visiting at Gettysburg College in Pennsylvania, two years as a postdoctoral scholar at Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology in Okinawa, Japan, and then one more year visiting at Colby College, in Maine.  I joined the Department of Mathematics at Hood College in the Fall of 2020.  
I am a Project Next (Gold, 21)  and Section Next Fellow.
