Mathematics Educator

I am an Assistant Teaching Professor in the Department of Applied and Computational Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Notre Dame.  I recently earned my Mathematics PhD with a minor in Mathematics Education from North Carolina State University.  I received my Bachelor's 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 graduate school.

My research is in the accessibility of lattice-based Cryptography to undergraduate students.  This semester, I will be teaching Applied Calculus I and Introduction to Math Methods I.  Read more about my teaching and research at the links below.
