About Me

I’m an Arthur J. Schmitt Leadership Fellow in mathematics at the University of Notre Dame. I graduated with an M.A. from the University of Pennsylvania in 2019 thanks in part to their Bridge-to-PhD program. I am interested in Commutative Algebra.


Outside of math, I like to make noise on the piano and the violin, and play darts.
