Math as a tool for justice
I am passionate about using math to explore relevant issues, particularly those surrounding environmental, social, public health, and educational justice. I believe that everyone can understand math and that my job as a researcher and educator is to find ways to communicate different ideas in and around math with a variety of audiences.
I am interested in working in spaces focused on both math research and education. In particular, I am deeply interested in being a part of interdisciplinary research environments. I am also excited about empowering students through the development of culturally sustaining pedagogies and developing curriculum that helps educators do so.
I received my BS in mathematics from the University of Utah in 2018. I opted to stay at my undergraduate institution for graduate school in order to continue working with my advisor, Ken Golden. I received my Ph.D. in mathematics in May of 2023.
In my spare time
When I'm not working on research or teaching, I can be found trail running in the foothills, skiing in the Wasatch, discovering obscure movies to watch with friends, or hanging out with my cat, Nala, and my dog, Petie!
