After receiving my PhD in mathematics from Dartmouth College in 2014, under Sergi Elizalde, I accepted the Harold H. Martin postdoctoral fellowship at Rutgers University.  While at Rutgers, I conducted research in enumerative combinatorics under the guidance of Doron Zeilberger.    In 2015 I joined the Lafayette College mathematics department as an assistant professor.

Prior to my academic life, I earned a Master in Financial Engineering in 2007 from the Haas School of Business at U.C. Berkeley.  With this degree, I worked as a Quant developing mathematical models for exotic derivatives on the fixed income desk for BNP Paribas in New York.
