I am a graduate student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I am going to start my fifth year in the Fall. My research interests are primarily in the homological aspects of commutative algebra. My advisors are Lucho Avramov and Mark Walker. You can find my CV here.

I have been co-organizing, with Nicholas Packauskas, the commutative algebra reading seminar at UNL (CARS) since 2016.

I have also been involved with some curriculum development at UNL.

- I helped developed worksheets used by the math department at UNL for math 104 during group work.
