I am currently an assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics at Harvey Mudd College. Before that I was a Harry Bateman Research Instructor in the Department of Mathematics at Caltech. I completed my PhD in mathematics in 2011 at the University of California, Davis under the supervision of Jesus De Loera. This was after completing a Master's of Mathematics in the Department of Combinatorics and Optimization at the University of Waterloo under the guidance of Ian P. Goulden. I also received my undergraduate degree there in 2006, receiving a double major in Pure Mathematics and Combinatorics and Optimization, Co-op Program
