I am a postdoc in the Boston College math department.
I received my Ph.D. from the University of Michigan in May 2015. My advisor there was Kartik Prasanna.

This semester I am teaching Calc II (MATH1105). Last semester I taught Calc I (MATH1100) as well as an introduction to p-adic Hodge theory (MATH882201).
I taught the following classes while at Michigan:
Math 115 (Calc I), 3 semesters
Math 116 (Calc II), 2 semesters
Math 215 (Calc III), 1 semester (as Lab Instructor)
