I am currently a postdoctoral research associate at Texas Tech, working with Lars Winther Christensen. My research interests are in commutative and homological algebra. A list of my papers and other research interests can be found on my Research Page. I also enjoy teaching all levels of mathematics and spending time with my family.

I received my PhD in 2016 from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where my advisor was Mark Walker. Before that, I received my BA (with majors in Mathematics and English) from Augustana University. Download a current version of my CV here.

This fall, I am co-organizing an AMS special session as well as a workshop "Structures on Free Resolutions." In the spring, I will be speaking at the Southest Local Algebra Meeting (SLAM) and at the Eastern Sectional AMS meeting. For more information, see below

Workshop: Structures on Free Resolutions

The 16th Red Raider Mini-Symposium took place October 26-28, 2017 at TTU, organized by myself and Lars Winther Christensen. We had 40 participants, and the meeting included 15 speakers and 2 workshop events. For a list of the talks and participants, go to:

AMS special session: Homological Methods in Commutative Algebra

At the Denton, TX Fall 2017 AMS sectional meeting, I am co-organizing a special session with Ashley Wheeler.
