About me:

I am in my fourth year as a Graduate Teaching Assistant here at KU. My research interests include probability, symbolic dynamics, ergodic theory, and combinatorics. My advisor is Terry Soo. In our research, we have constructed entropy increasing monotone factors for a Bernoulli shift over the free group of rank at least two, and we have constructed a finitary isomorphism between Poisson point processes.
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!
