About Me

I am a Ross Assistant Professor at Ohio State University. I work in ergodic theory and number theory, particularly using geodesic flows on modular surfaces to describe various continued fraction maps. I am also the Director of Buckeye Aha! Math Moments outreach group. As a graduate student at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, I co-founded and directed the Summer Illinois Math Camp. I was the outreach coordinator of the Illinois Geometry Lab from Spring 2015-Spring 2018.

In Autumn 2021, I am teaching Mathematics for Architects . The course website is on Carmen. The syllabus is available Here.

I am developing a new Recreation Mathematics and Outreach service learning course with Monica Delgado Carrillo, as part of a grant from University Office of Service Learning. This course will run in Spring 2022, pending Univeristy approval.
