## About Me

I am an Associate Professor of Mathematics at Loras College. My mathematical interests lie in the relationship between commutative algebra and combinatorics. I received my Ph.D. in May 2010 from the University of Notre Dame, where I studied cores of ideals under the direction of my adviser Claudia Polini.

I have advised undergraduate research projects studying paper-folding geometry, reduction numbers of monomial ideals, the relationship between projective geometry and perspective art, symmetries of Sudokus, and using fractals to create and analyze music.

Outside of math, I can usually be found playing ultimate, cooking, reading, or playing piano.
