I am a graduate student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I am in my fifth year and plan to graduate in May 2018. My research interests are primarily in the homological aspects of commutative algebra. I am also interested DG homological algebra, triangulated categories, and representation theory. My advisors are Lucho Avramov and Mark Walker. You can find my CV here.
