I'm a PhD student in the Mathematics Department at UIUC.

I received Bachelor of Science degrees in Mathematics and Engineering Science and Mechanics from Virginia Tech, Master of Science degree in Mathematics from Virginia Tech. My Master's thesis, "Cycle-Free Twisted Face-Pairing 3-Manifolds", was written under the supervision of William Floyd.

My general research interests are in metric space analysis and geometry; particularly embeddings involving Banach spaces, groups (especially Carnot), graphs, and fractals. My advisor is Jeremy Tyson.
