​I have just completed my second undergraduate degree at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities. I do research in commutative and combinatorial algebra under Prof. Vic Reiner. My previous degree was in Vocal Performance. The time between degrees was spent living in Berlin, Germany, where I studied opera with Professor Norma Sharp at Hanns-Eisler Musik Hochschule. Following my time in Europe, I completed a coding bootcamp at General Assembly, NYC. 


I am an 2020 NSF Graduate Research Fellow and will be pursuing a pure math PhD at UC Davis beginning Fall 2020.
