I am currently a postdoc at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). My research interests are in commutative and homological algebra. A list of my papers and other research interests can be found on my Research Page. I also enjoy teaching all levels of mathematics and spending time with my family.

Recently, I was a postdoc at Texas Tech University (from 2016-2018) working with Lars Winther Christensen. I received my PhD in 2016 from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where my advisor was Mark Walker. Before that, I received my BA (with majors in Mathematics and English) from Augustana University.
