I am currently a Lecturer in the math department at Yale University.

I did my PhD studies at NC State University where I worked with Irina Kogan studying applications of differential invariants of planar curves to the global equivalence problem.

I enjoy riding and fixing bicycles. I've done some longer rides across the continental United States with the organization Bike & Build, and bicycle toured in Alaska, Germany, and Austria. Some of my favorite places fix bicycles are at co-ops like the Reno Bike Project, Austin's Yellow Bike Project, Raleigh Community Kickstand, and Bradley Street Bike Co-op. I also enjoy hiking, camping, climbing, playing games (video, board, and card), and reading.

I have a cat. Her name is Marceline.
