About me

I am a 5th year graduate student being co-advised by Vojtěch Rödl and Dwight Duffus. I have a Master's degree in computer science and anticipate receiving my Ph.D. in mathematics in May 2017.

Research Interests

My research interests lie primarily in the fields of graph theory and combinatorics. Specifically, extremal and probabilistic combinatorics with particular interest in Turán theory, graph coloring, and hypergraph problems. For a more detailed look at my future research projects as well as an overview of my current research experience, check out my research page for more information.

Teaching Philosophy

An ideal mathematics lecture is one that is presented in a clear and precise manner without sacrificing the engagement of your students. From my teaching statement:

Plainly, my philosophy is that when you talk about math like it's interesting, not so hard, and kind of funny, it becomes all of those things to your students.
