(On the job market in Fall 2023)

I'm a sixth year PhD student in mathematics at the University of Utah interested in commutative algebra and its intersection with algebraic topology. In particular, I'm interested in using DG, simplicial, and spectral methods to understand the homological and homotopical properties of commutative rings. My advisors are Srikanth Iyengar and Ben Briggs.

I received a BS in mathematics from from FIT in Melbourne, FL, along with most of a physics degree. I also enjoy playing go, unpalatable jazz, palatable jazz, telling myself I'll learn to play the bass someday, drinking tea, and using Linux. I like trains, busses, walking, biking, and generally not being in a car.
