# About Me

I am a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Mathematics at Auburn University.

I grew up in New York City and graduated from Stuyvesant High School in 2005. For my undergrad education, I majored in Applied Mathematics at the Rochester Institute of Technology, graduating in May 2009.

I earned my PhD in Mathematics at the University of Illinois in August 2014. My advisor was Douglas B. West.

From 2014 to 2016, I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Coordinated Science Lab of the University of Illinois, working in the research group of Olgica Milenkovic.

My primary research interest is combinatorics, especially graph theory, coloring problems, and combinatorial games. Other interests include computation, logic, and game theory (in the economic sense).

In October 2017, I gave a recorded talk at the Iowa State University discrete math seminar, which you might be interested in watching.
