Biography

In 2011, I received my Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of New Hampshire under the advisement of Dr. Maria Basterra where I studied algebraic topology. In my dissertation, I studied natural topologies on homotopy groups and their connections to topological group theory.

From 2011-2012, I held the position of Lecturer at the University of New Hampshire. From 2012-2017, I held the position of Lecturer/Senior Lecturer at Georgia State University in Atlanta, GA. During my time at Georgia State

  • I was a Faculty Teaching Fellow (2016-2017),
  • I received the GSU Outstanding Math & Stats Teaching Award (2017),
  • I received the Mathematical Association of America Southeastern Award for Distinguished Teaching by a Beginning Faculty Member (March 2017).

Since August 2017, I am a tenure-track Assistant Professor at West Chester University.

Outside of mathematics, I am a long time practitioner of yoga and certified yoga teacher. I also enjoy running, hiking, biking, and science fiction.

My Research

My research is in the field of topology. Specifically, I study the algebraic topology of locally complicated spaces, sometimes called wild topology. I also have interests in general topology and category theory.

I sporadically maintain a blog related to my research called Wild Topology
