### About Me

I am a Mathematician at the Federal Aviation Administration.

I graduated with my Mathematics Ph.D. from the University of Virginia in Spring 2021. There, I studied homotopy theory under the direction of Professor Nicholas Kuhn. In particular, my research concerned the structure of the equivariant stable homotopy Balmer spectrum and its applications to non-equivariant settings. My dissertation is titled Applications of Chromatic Fixed Point Theory.

Before coming to the University of Virginia I received my B.S. in mathematics with a minor in computer science at the University of Mary Washington, where I was mentored by Professor Randall D. Helmstutler and Professor Andrew Marshall.

Outside of mathematics, I enjoy the outdoors, and programming.

#### Directed Reading Program

Starting in Fall 2018 I have worked closely with Professor Sara Maloni to organize the University of Virginia chapter of the Directed Reading Program. This program pairs advanced undergraduates with graduate student mentors to explore an area of math not typically covered in the undergraduate curriculum. This program is very important to me which is why I have taken on the following roles:

- Graduate committee chair
- Webmaster
- Mentor

#### Research Experience for Undergraduates

In the Summer of 2020 I participated as a mentor in the University of Virginia Topology and Geometry REU. I worked under the direction of Professor Julie Bergner with fellow graduate student Ross Akhmechet to assist the undergraduate researchers as they explored the feasibility of a TQFT theory for embedded cobordisms that could detect knottings.

#### Teaching Mentor

As a 5th year graduate student I have had the opportunity to teach a variety of classes at the university level, however not so many that I no longer remember what it was like to be a first time instructor. For this reason I was very pleased to accept the invitation from Professor Paul Bourdon to be a teaching mentor for a second year graduate student in Fall 2020.
