Ph.D in Mathematics, Iowa State University, 2010
B.S. in Mathematics, Minnesota State University, 2005
Originally from the small town of Pipestone, Minnesota, I received my B.S. in Mathematics with minors in Astronomy and Statistics from Minnesota State University, Mankato in 2005. In 2010, I received my Ph.D. in Mathematics at Iowa State University working in the area of finite-dimensional Hopf algebras. My mathematical research interests are in areas related to abstract and linear algebra: associative and non-associative algebras, representation theory, linear algebra, group theory, and category theory.
At Dalton State, I teach many mathematics courses ranging from freshman level general education math courses like Intro to Math Modeling and College Algebra, up to the Calculus and Linear Algebra courses for STEM majors, as well as courses for mathematics majors such as Abstract Algebra and Number Theory. In 2018 I was honored to receive Dalton State's Faculty Award for Excellence in Teaching. A member of the Honors Program Council here at Dalton State, one of my interests is teaching courses designed for honors students. I am also interested in supervising undergraduate mathematics research, so feel free to contact me in regards to research opportunities, especially those related to linear or abstract algebra.
