For as long as I can remember, I enjoyed math. When in high school in Texas, I competed in several mathematical competitions every year. When going to college, I wanted to be a doctor. Since I always enjoyed math, I decided to be Math/Pre-Med. Upon studying, I decided I would rather attend graduate school in mathematics than go to medical school. During graduate school, I found my passion for teaching as well.
I am fairly new to the University, but I love how close the Mathematics Department is. Both the faculty and students work well together. In addition, I love being a part of the larger Colleges of the Fenway, which offers additional opportunities to many of our students.
My research is primarily Knot Theory, with an emphasis on Algebraic Topology, Geometric Topology, and Geometric Group Theory. I am an Algebraist by training, but have expanded to Topology as my research has continued. I am interested primarily in the space formed through knots and what these different spaces look like.
