Ph.D. Mathematics, University of Connecticut, 2022

M.A. Mathematics, The George Washington University, 2014

B.S. Mathematics, Gallaudet University, 2012

Prior Employment:

Graduate Teaching Assistant, University of Connecticut, 2016-2022

Adjunct I, Gallaudet University, 2014-2016

Research Interests: In graduate school, I studied the theoretical foundations of heat flow and electric current on rough, intricate shapes called fractals. This uses a lot of different tools - probability theory, calculus, linear algebra, geometry, and more. Most of my research is theoretical but I do do some numerical / computational work. I am always looking for undergraduate research assistants. 

I am also expanding my research and knowledge areas. I am currently working on my data science, actuarial science, abstract algebra, and statistics skills. I also do some work related to deaf mathematics education and signing mathematics. 

You can find my thesis at:

Personal Interests: I enjoy traditional card games (such as Spades, Bridge, Euchre) and many board games. When I have time I enjoy craftsy hobbies such as block print art, sewing, and origami and I casually play sports like pickleball and ultimate frisbee.
