# Biographical Sketch

I am currently an Assistant Professor and the Capital One Endowed Professor of Mathematics in the School of Sciences at the University of Louisiana Monroe. I am also a Project NExT (New Experiences in Teaching) fellow in the Red '22 cohort. I was previously a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Lafayette College.

I am a Vermonter, born and raised. When I'm not doing mathematics, I tend to spend my time outdoors. I enjoy hiking, backpacking, cycling, gardening during the summers and snowboarding in the winter.

# Research Interests

Algebraic geometry is a discipline that utilizes tools from many different areas of mathematics that form the basis for our understanding of a vast array of applications: the study of elliptic curves has produced modern cryptographic methods; methods from homological algebra provide data scientists with cutting edge tools for understanding the shape of data; the study of derived categories provides a link to string theory by way of Kontsevich's homological mirror symmetry.

My particular research interests lie broadly in developing algebraic techniques to study structures in noncommutative algebra through derived categories on noncommutative projective schemes.
