Hello! I'm a mathematician (postdoc) at Boston College. I'm interested in leveraging connections between Khovanov homology and Heegaard Floer homology to better understand three- and four-manifolds, transverse knots, and knotted surfaces. I'm also interested in machine learning and how it can be applied for the public good.

In May 2016 I completed my PhD at Boston College. My advisor was John Baldwin.

I spent three years as a postdoc at the University of Georgia under the supervision of David Gay.

You can find me in Maloney 573 or at I've contributed to The Electric Handleslide, the best-named math blog.
