About me:

I am in my fourth year as a Graduate Teaching Assistant here at KU. My advisor is Albert Sheu. I am currently studying noncommutative geometry and C*-algebras. In the past, I have done work in probability and symbolic dynamics and constructed entropy increasing monotone factors for a Bernoulli shift over the free group of rank at least two and constructed a finitary isomorphism between Poisson point processes, both with Terry Soo.
I received my master's in Mathematics from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 2013, in the area of geometric group theory. In 2010 I received my B.S. in Mathematics from Beloit College.
I have the best cat; his name is Rocky. Some photographic evidence.
This year I am the president of the KU Math Grad Student Organization. Check out our seminars for cool math and free pizza!
