I'm an Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Applied Mathematics and the Systems Modelling and Analysis PhD program at Virginia Commonwealth University. Before that, I was a Visiting Assistant Professor at Arizona State University, and a research postdoc at Instituto Nacional de Matematica Pura e Aplicada in Rio de Janeiro. I completed my doctorate under the of supervision Prof. Bela Bollobas at the University of Memphis, in the Department of Mathematical Sciences, in May 2012; this followed an M.S. at Western Washington University under the supervision of Dr. Amites Sarkar, and a B.A. at The University of Colorado. I am greatly indebted all my teachers and to those around me who have helped me throughout my academic career, although I attempt no comprehensive list here. My academic interests lie primarily in the mysteries and details of mathematics, particularly extremal and probabilistic combinatorics. Outside my academia, I enjoy weird jazz, loud punk rock, guitars, skiing, snowboarding, as well as life, the universe, and everything.
