I grew up in Ohio, and spent my undergraduate years there. I studied philosophy and some other things at Kenyon College, a small college in rural Ohio. After that, I migrated to Detroit, Michigan to work in the public schools, where I was a math specialist at a non-profit organization called Project SEED, which meant that I taught special enrichment math courses to elementary and middle school students and gave workshops for teachers. I realized then that my passion was mathematics, so I spent a couple of years getting a Master’s degree. I completed my Ph.D. at Texas A&M University in the Summer of 2009, and began my position here at Vassar in August 2009. You can read more about me and things I’m thinking about these days on my teaching and research pages.
