Doctoral Candidate & Graduate Teaching Assistant
Department of Mathematics
University of Colorado Boulder
My office is Math 360 and my office hours are W 2-3pm and F 9-10am, subject to change.
- My research is in algebraic combinatorics and my advisor is Richard Green.
- In April 2012 I gave a talk in the Algebraic Lie Theory seminar here at CU about Partition Algebras and the Symmetric Group. You can view the beamer slides here.
- I wrote my senior thesis at Reed on the connections between dimer covers and sandpile groups. My thesis advisor was David Perkinson; here's his sandpile page. I also gave a talk on this topic in the Slow Pitch colloquium at CU in November 2011.
- At the Willamette Valley Consortium REU-RET 2009, I worked with Jason Xu (University of Arizona) on solving variations on the combinatorial game Odd Wins. Our advisor was Hans Nordstrom. I gave a short talk about our work with Odd Wins in the Reed Mathematics colloquium in Spring 2010.

I can tutor for any class I am not currently teaching. I really like tutoring for Math 1300, 2300, and 3140 (that's Calc 1, Calc 2, and Abstract Algebra). I charge $40/hour, and I usually only accept new tutees during the first five weeks of the semester or so. If interested you should email me.
- My comprehensive exam was in April 2013 and covered introductory material on Coxeter groups, Lie algebras, and commutative algebra. My comp syllabus and the notes I made while sudying are online here.
- I use TikZ/PGF all the time for creating all types of graphics for LaTeX documents. I made a document full of TikZ examples; here's the code and the pdf output.
- I encourage any undergraduate women in math to consider applying to Carleton's SMP program. I went in 2008 and I learned so much. It's aimed at women who have completed Linear Algebra and are finishing their freshman or sophomore years.
