I am an assistant professor in the mathematics department
at Virginia Tech. Previously, I was a post-doctoral fellow in the
Institute for Quantum Computing
at the University of Waterloo. I received my PhD in 2018 from
Penn State University, and
my advisor was Kirsten Eisenträger. I am interested
in cryptography, explicit methods in number theory, and definability and decidability in number theory.
With Daniel Orr and Milo Bechtloff Weising,,
I am coorganizing the algebra seminar at
Virginia Tech. I currently serve as the chair of the Virginia Tech Mathematics Department colloquium.
