I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Mathematics at Texas A&M, under the supervision of Dr. Michael Brannan. I am interested primarily in operator algebras, quantum information theory, and functional analysis.

I am also currently on the job market, and so I especially encourage you to look at my research, teaching, and service pages.

Gathering in Graduate Expository Mathematics (GIG'EM) 2020

GIG'EM 2020 took place on Saturday, October 10th, 2020. You can find the website here.


I have included a number of resources I created or utilized to survive my PhD in mathematics, some of which can be found here.

Qualifying Exams

I have taught the real analysis qualifier exam preparation course in the summers 2018 and 2019. I have created a number of resources for the real analysis and algebra qualifying exams at Texas A&M, which can be found here.

Directed Reading Program

Along with Dr. Anne Shiu, Angelique Morvant and Pablo Sanchez Ocal, I am organizing a Directed Reading Program for undergraduate students. This began in Fall 2018, and has run each subsequent Fall and Spring semester.
