Current news: (3/1/21)

For the spring 2021 semester I'm teaching Discrete Mathematics (2 sections) and Combinatorics 2 (1 section).

I thoroughly enjoyed being the keynote speaker for the 2021 Moravian Student Mathematics Conference in February.

Other February excitement:

  • I was invited to speak in the National Museum of Mathematics's Math Encounters public lecture series. Stay tuned for more info about an early summer presentation!
  • My promotion to Full Professor was successful, so my title officially upgrades in August!

Outside of class I'm enjoying work on the admissions committee for MathPath and teaching myself to play the guitar.
