Background

I started at Davidson in 2010, after completing a doctorate at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Algorithms, Combinatorics, and Optimization. I hold a Certificate of Advanced Study in Mathematics from the University of Cambridge and a B.S. in Mathematics with a humanities concentration in Economics from Harvey Mudd College.

My research and teaching interests are in structural graph theory, combinatorics and statistics with an emphasis towards applications in economics and sports analytics. I enjoy teaching my seminar in game theory and mathematical finance. I am very actively involved in the Charlotte Math Club and supporting other mathematics competitions such as the American Mathematical Society's Who Wants to be a Mathematician competition. I also coach Davidson's ACM computer programming competition team. Among my awards include a Barry M. Goldwater scholarship and a Winston Churchill Foundation scholarship. My broad interests include tennis and korfball.
