## 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 mathemagic, paper-folding geometry, reduction numbers of monomial ideals, the relationship between projective geometry and perspective art, symmetries of Sudokus, using fractals to create and analyze music, and using continued fractions to create and analyze musical scales.

Outside of math, I can usually be found playing with my two children, gardening, cooking, reading, or playing piano.
