I am currently a Teacher-Scholar Postdoctoral Fellow at Wake Forest University in North Carolina and work with Kenneth Berenhaut. In 2018, I received my Ph.D. in mathematics under the supervision of Sergi Elizalde at Dartmouth College. Starting in Fall 2021, I will be a Visiting Assistant Professor at Amherst College.

I enjoy thinking about questions such as:

- How can we understand the community structure of data? What is the meaning of
*local*? What do we mean by*clusters*? - Can simple (socially-inspired) local rules for a random walk on a network lead to interesting global properties?
- Where do (finite) random walks on a network take us? In what ways are those reached
*central*? - Suppose that, rather than numeric distances, we only have
*distance comparisons*(among triples of points). How can we effectively leverage that limited information? What kind of structure is required for interpretability? - Can we articulate measures of the degree of
*unpredictability*of a process given that we can only witness a single (relatively short) sequence of outcomes?

Broadly speaking, the questions I’m interested in these days are in discrete applied probability and are motivated by a social perspective. My thesis work was focused on combinatorial problems arising from permutation-based approaches to time series analysis and its connections to classical discrete dynamics.
