I am a Lecturer in the Mathematics department. I teach a lot of lower-level courses, but I occasionally work with 3000-level and 4000-level classes. Some of my favorite things to teach are MATH 2260 (Calculus II) and MATH 3200 (Intro to Higher Math). I have taught a formal set theory course as MATH 4950, and I hope to offer that course again occasionally.

Before being hired by UGA, I received a Doctorate of Arts (D.A.) degree from Carnegie Mellon University in 2011. Instead of doing research, I wrote a textbook draft for an analysis course. My coursework focused mostly on graph theory, pure logic, and set theory. One of my favorite parts of mathematics is the (transfinite) ordinal hierarchy.

Outside of teaching, I run a lot and bike occasionally. I used to competitively play Dance Dance Revolution as well. If you want to know more, you'll just have to talk to me sometime.
