## About

I am a fifth-year Ph.D. student in the Mathematics Department at the University of Chicago, studying algebraic topology. Before that I also studied physics and computer science at New Mexico Tech while working in phenomenology and optimization at Sandia National Laboratories. I'm interested in spaces of algebraic maps between varieties, the topology of algorithms, braids and configuration spaces, and the interplay of topology with number theory. I'm also interested in critical pedagogy with applications to math and science education.

My advisor is Benson Farb.

Here is my CV.

This is my Teaching Philosphy. In short, I do my best to make STEM inclusive and anti-racist by making space in class to talk honestly about the human contexts of math.
