I earned my PhD in Mathematics from Purdue University in 2007 under the direction of Professor Bernd Ulrich, and I held postdoctoral positions at the University of Kansas and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and an Assistant Professor position at Cleveland State University before joining the math department at DePaul University. My research interests are in Commutative Algebra, Algebraic Geometry and Combinatorics.
