I am a third year graduate student in mathematics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
My mathematical interests are in low dimensional topology and hyperbolic geometry, working with my advisor Nathan Dunfield.
I recieved my BS in mathematics from The University of Georgia as well as a minor in Spanish.

Research Interests

I am currently trying to understand the statistics of random 3-manifolds, in particular random links. For more info, see the slides for the preliminary report given by Nathan Dunfield last Fall. I am also interested in computational questions in topology, and currently work on the Spherogram module in Snappy.


On April 17, 2015 I gave a talk in the graduate student geometry/topology seminar about Thompson's group F and it's relationship with knot theory. Slides can be found here



For the current academic year (Fall 2015 - Spring 2016) I will have a research assistantship, and am not a TA. In the past I have been a TA for the following:
