I am a post-doctoral researcher at Queen's University and I study combinatorial commutative algebra. I received my PhD from Dalhousie University under the supervision of Sara Faridi. See my cv for more details.


In 2013, I taught Math 121 which is a blended course on introductory calculus for students in arts and science. In the fall of 2013, I also taught Mthe 217, a second year course in algebraic structures for engineering math majors. For a detailed account of my teaching experience, see my teaching statement or my cv. I have also made a number of teaching resources available online.


I'm interested in commutative algebra and combinatorics. Specifically, I study free resolutions and Hilbert functions of graded algebras and their connections to graphs, simplicial complexes and invariant theory.
