I have served as President (2019/2020) and Secretary (2018/2019 and 2020/2021) for the American Mathematical Society (AMS) Graduate Student Chapter at Texas A&M University. The website can be found here.


I have included a number of resources I created or utilized to survive my PhD in mathematics and obtain postdoc offers, 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 was an organizer (2018-2021) of the Directed Reading Program for undergraduate students. This began in Fall 2018, and has run each subsequent Fall and Spring semester.
