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, including associative and non-associative algebras, representation theory, linear algebra, group theory, and category theory.

As a faculty member at Dalton State since 2010, 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 Spring 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 interested in delving into the applications, development, and history of mathematics.  I am also active in supervising undergraduate mathematics research, and have so far supervised two math majors in research projects related to abstract algebra as well as serving on the STEM Undergraduate Rearch Committee. Please contact me if you are interested in mathematics research opportunities, especially anything related to linear algebra, abstract algebra, or mathematics education.
