I am an assistant professor in the mathematics and statistics department at Grinnell College. My research is primarily in the fields of
algebraic number theory and arithmetic geometry. Currently I work on questions of how Jacobian varieties decompose.
I received my Ph.D. from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2007 and I was a postdoc at Kansas State University from 2007-2010. I also spent a year at Villanova University. My childhood and formative years were spent in Wild, Wonderful West Virginia.
