I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Mathematics, interested in algebraic geometry, toric varieties, and their applications to mathematical physics. A synopsis of my research interests is available on my research page. I received my Ph.D. from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in May of 2008. My academic genealogy may be viewed here.

This semester I am teaching Math 115, *Calculus with
probability and matrices*.
Students can find class-related information on my
