About me: I am a third year graduate student and PhD candidate in Mathematics at the University of Minnesota. My advisor is Vic Reiner. I did my undergrad at Reed College. After that, I spent a year at Smith College's Post-Baccalaureate Program for women in mathematics.
I am currently supported by the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program. Before that, I was supported by a three-year UMN College of Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship.
Research: I study algebraic combinatorics and representation theory. Specifically, I am interested in the combinatorics and representation theory of reflection groups, and their intersection with algebraic topology. See my research page for more details.

- I am a co-organizer of the Mathematics Project at Minnesota, a four-day workshop in January for UMN undergraduates that come from groups traditionally underrepresented in mathematics. The workshop runs annually every January.
- I am co-organizing the Graduate Student Combinatorics Conference on April 23-25, 2021 at UMN. Check back for details.
- I co-run Math Club with Montie Avery. We are always interested in finding speakers to give talks that are accessible to undergraduates.
- In 2018-2019 I co-organized the Student Combinatorics and Algebra Seminar with Esther Banaian. The 2019-2020 website can be found here.
