I am an Assistant Teaching Professor in the Department of Applied and Computational Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Notre Dame. I earned my Mathematics PhD with a minor in Mathematics Education from North Carolina State University. I received my Bachelors degrees in Mathematics and Secondary Mathematics Education from NC State in 2012 as a North Carolina Teaching Fellow. I taught high school mathematics for six years before returning to graduate school.
My mathematical interests lie in the accessibility of lattice-based Cryptography to undergraduate students and curriculum development. I currently teach Statistics for Life Sciences and Mathematical Cryptography with Python. Read more about my teaching and research at the links below.
