About Me

I am a recent PhD from North Carolina State University in Mathematics with a minor in Mathematics Education.  My dissertation research was supervised by Dr. Ernest Stitzinger and focused on the development of an undergraduate-accessible lattice based Cryptography curriculum with Python programming and the SageMath Computer Algebra System.  I am beginning my career as an Assistant Teaching Professor at the University of Notre Dame in the Fall.  I will be teaching Applied Calculus I and Introduction to Math Methods I in the Department of Applied and Computational Mathematics and Statistics.

I grew up just outside of Charlotte, NC with my parents and three siblings.  After high school, I attended North Carolina State University as a North Carolina Teaching Fellow and earned degrees in Mathematics and Secondary Mathematics Education.  I moved back to Charlotte to teach high school mathematics and coach middle and high school cheerleading for six years.  Then, I went back to the Raleigh area to continue my education by pursuing a PhD in math at NC State.  Now, I live in South Bend, IN and teach at Notre Dame.

When I am not working, I enjoy watching football, cooking, spending time with my nieces and nephews, listening to true crime podcasts, and  hanging out with my dog, Bella.
