## About

I am a Gibbs Assistant Professor in the mathematics department at
Yale University, where my mentor is Sam Payne. In Fall 2018,
I will begin a 3 year position as a postdoctoral scholar at the
University of Kentucky, where I will work with Dave Jensen.

I received my
PhD in 2017 from the University of
Oregon, under the supervision of Nick Proudfoot.

## Research

I like to work with combinatorial objects which show up in
algebraic geometry. I am specifically interested in matroids,
hypertoric varieties, and tropical and non-archimedean geoemetry. Find
a list of my papers and preprints here.

Together with Asher
Auel, Yuchen Liu,
Kalina Mincheva, and
Sam Payne, I am a
co-organizer of the Yale algebraic and
tropical geometry seminar.

## Teaching

In Spring 2018 I am teaching Math 657: Matroid Theory.
