I joined Mercy College after a two-year post-doctoral position at Vanderbilt University working under the supervision of Dr. Jesse Peterson in the research areas of operator algebras, countable groups, and representation theory. I received my Ph.D. in Mathematics at the University of California, Riverside in June 2018 under the supervision of Dr. Alain Valette and Dr. Feng Xu, and I completed my B.S. degree in Journalism at Northwestern University in December 2011, double-majoring in Journalism and Mathematics.

Here is a video of me presenting joint work with Dr. Jesse Peterson and soon-to-be-Dr. Ishan Ishan at the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery on 3 October 2019 during the workshop "Classification Problems in von Neumann Algebras." Here is a video of me presenting our results during the workshop "Actions of Tensor Categories on C*-Algebras" hosted by the Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics on 25 January 2021.
During the 2021-2022 school year, I will serve as director of Mercy Actuarial Pathways (MAP), made possible by a Mathematical Association of America Tensor Women & Mathematics grant. This project will prepare undergraduate women at Mercy College for the actuarial exams FM and P. MAP includes funding for a kick-off panel event this fall, study materials for the participants, coverage of their exam fees, and stipends for their participation. Links and more information will be posted soon.
