I love talking about my research, and am also passionate about teaching. You can find more information on both below!
Teaching + Outreach

Mathematics Education Research
In Summer 2014, I had the opportunity to spend two months at the University of Pretoria in South Africa, under an NSF GROW with USAID Research and Innovation Fellowship. I worked with Professor Johann Engelbrecht and Caroline Long on developing, implementing, and testing mathematics education materials in South African public schools.

I am particularly excited about exploring the link between algebra and graph theory by translating algebraic problems into combinatorial questions about graphs, and vice versa. My graduate research unites discrete mathematics with representation theory and algebraic combinatorics through a generalization of the classical discrete Fourier transform to finite groups and semisimple algebras. I have developed efficient algorithms to compute generalized Fourier transforms and have also analyzed their applications to random walks. For more details, you can view my research statement here. You can also hear me talk about classical Fourier transforms here (starting around 1:36).

When not doing math, I am running as much as possible. I played soccer in college (go tigers!) and have since taken up distance running. I've run seven half-marathons, four marathons, a 50k, a 50-miler, and eight Alonzo-Stagg 50/20s. I am currently training for a 100-mile race!
