I am a fourth year Ph.D. candidate in the Mathematics Department at the University of Michigan. My advisor is Mel Hochster.

My research interests are in commutative algebra with a homological flavor. I'm especially interested in problems about the structure of local cohomology modules, and in the use of characteristic *p > 0* techniques to attack those problems. Recently, I've been working on questions related to the support of local cohomology, with a particular focus on complete intersections.

I started at Michigan in September 2015. Before that, I completed a B.S. in Mathematics at New Mexico Tech.

I am a transgender woman, and I care deeply about issues related to LGBTQ+ inclusion and trans rights in the academy. I am currently involved in a number of projects working with the University to improve the state of healthcare for transgender students and employees. If you share my interest in healthcare equity for trans people, or if you would like to work more broadly on LBGTQ+ community-building in Mathematics, feel free to contact me - I would love to talk!

I am also co-organizer of the Student Commutative Algebra Seminar
