I am a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Connecticut. My research interests are in number theory, primarily arithmetic statistics and number field counting. I completed my PhD under Nigel Boston at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2018.

I’m on the Job Market

I am currently applying for positions starting in Fall 2020. I am maintaining a page on my website as a one-stop-shop for professional information about myself during the application process, which you can find here: Job Search. Sending out applications is an ongoing process, and I plan to continue updating this page with the most current information throughout that time.
