I am a graduate student in mathematics at the University of Michigan. I graduated with a B.A. Mathematics from Kalamazoo College before coming to Michigan. As an undergraduate, I participated in the Budapest Semesters in Mathematics program and the SMALL REU at Williams College ^{[1] [2]}.

My research (under my advisor, Anna Gilbert) considers mathematical problems in single-cell genomics, as part of the Michigan Center for Single-Cell Genomic Data Analytics. As part of this work, I am co-developing the PicturedRocks Single-Cell RNA Sequencing Analysis Tool.

## Teaching

- MATH 115 — Calculus I (Canvas Homepage for Fall 2018 Students)

## Other interests

Outside math, I enjoy running, cooking, programming, and juggling. These interests are currently pairwise non-simultaneous, but are not necessarily non-simultaneous with math.
