About Me
I'm currently a PhD student in the ACO Program (Algorithms, Combinatorics and Optimization) as part of the Department of Mathematics here at Carnegie Mellon University.
Before coming to CMU, I completed both my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in mathematics at Iowa State University.
My research focuses on the interplay between algebraic, geometric and probabilistic tools in extremal combinatorics, but I find all parts of mathematics interesting and beautiful.
