I'm a MathCEP postdoc in the Mathematics Department at the University of Minnesota.

I incorporate active learning methods into my teaching as much as possible, and I continue to develop my teaching methods in order to be a more effective teacher for my students.

My broad areas of research are computational algebra and algebraic geometry, and my research is currently focused on the existence of sums-of-squares formulas over arbitrary fields.

In addition to my own research, I supervise several undergraduate research projects.

In 2016, I completed my PhD in Mathematics at UCLA. My advisor was Christian Haesemeyer. My thesis is available here.
