**Summer 2021** -- I worked as a TA for the Summer Geometry Initiative (SGI) up at MIT. You can see some of the projects that the students put together here.

**Summer 2019 - Fall 2020** -- I worked under Dr. Jeanne Clelland on a project studying mathematical methods of generating district maps to help prevent gerrymandering within states. Specifically, we focused on determining compactness measures for the dual graph of district mappings generated using a ReComb method (a Markov Chain Monte Carlo algorithm).

**Fall 2017 - Spring 2018** -- I worked on an independent study project
dealing with the applications of Discrete Differential Geometry (DDG) to 3D rendering and
Geometry processing software. This culminated in an honor's thesis where I connected
some of the topics in DDG to their uses in the making of movies and other graphical
entertainment. The paper is written to be as accessible as possible to any undergraduate
that has taken Calculus, so please take a look if you are interested. There are
lots of pretty pictures!

**Summer 2017** -- I worked as part of a summer REU studying and
calculating a formal group laws for p-adic integers. Our calculations were mainly
done in $\mathbb{Z}_5$.

**Summer 2016** -- I worked as part of an REU studying Möbius
transformations related to the Schmidt arrangement of $\mathbb{Q}(i)$.
