(and Phoebe)

Hi. I'm currently a graduate student in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Utah. This is my website with stuff on it.

I'm currently a fourth year graduate student with the Mathematical Biology Research Program in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, Utah.

University of Utah
Lafayette College

I'm originally from Pennsylvania. In 2013, I graduated from Lafayette College, a small liberal arts school in Easton, PA. While attending Lafayette, I obtained two degrees: a BS in electrical & computer engineering and a BS in mathematics.

Most of my time is spent doing math or attempting to appease the ever-growing demands of my cat, Piper. Otherwise, you might find me juggling between climbing, skiing, or being that vegan friend.

her highness, Piper

Generally, I am interested in applied mathematics with an emphasis on mathematical biology. I'm currently studying stochastic process describing biophysical aspects of molecular motor transport. My CV can be found here.
